Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/11/10

4532 Glenway Avenue, West Price Hill
DOB: 1896
Died: June 2009
Cause of death: Roof damage caused by the September 2008 wind storm, allowing moisture to damage the structure. The house was vacant at the time, and the property owner was more than $6,000 behind in her property taxes.

Acquired by the City of Cincinnati shortly after ordering it vacant in October 2008, the cleared land will be used for the expansion of the adjacent Fire Station No. 24. The station, built in 1939, has been deemed to be about half of the size required of a modern fire facility.
