1117 N Liberty

Post by JaxUnicorn » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:47 am

For those who don't know, this house caught fire last night. Appears to have been started underneath, probably from a homeless person trying to stay warm. I've posted my pics here for archival in case MCCD sets its sights on the property. Was just re-cited yesterday. I've not looked at it today, but Gloria said she'd go by this morning and take some pictures of underneath the house. This house was NOT damaged enough to warrant an emergency demolition in my opinion.

She is unsecure with both front doors wide open and needs to be boarded. There's been an offer to help by someone on FB and I mentioned we needed plywood. Tony Sullivan says he has some PSOS plywood in his backyard and Terrence Banner said he'c check their shop as well for plywood.

I haven't made it by there yet. If anyone else wants to snap a few pics of the underneath that would be great

I took a couple pictures this evening. Looks like the damage is limited to one corner in the back. Some of the beams in that area are charred. The house has new framing inside, but as Kim said is now wide open. Looks to me like JFRD got to the fire very quickly and the damage isn't too bad.
