Wrecking Cincinnati, 8/3/10

2818 Harrison Avenue, Westwood
DOB: 1925
Died: October 2009
Cause of death: Severe fire damage, leaving it open to the elements. Further damage was caused by a car plowing into it. The structure was vacant at the time.

The house was condemned following the fire in October 2008, declared a public nuisance in June 2009, and was razed privately by Fannie Mae.

It appears that foreclosure put this property in limbo for quite some time, leaving the corner blighted and filled with debris for an extended period of time. A new owner, who has owned the property for three months, already has been cited for operating an illegal yard sale and for overgrown grass and weeds.
