In Brief: Suspicious Erie house fire probed
Erie fire officials are investigating what is being described as a suspicious blaze Thursday night at a vacant house at 534 E. Eighth St. Firefighters were sent to a two-story home just before 10:30 p.m. after a neighbor spotted smoke coming from a vent and alerted authorities.

urban renewal... it is a challenge to get those urine soaked houses to burn

Problem is there are people [ homeowners] that live right next door which is about 7 feet away, cause the houses are packed like sardines.
They cannot afford to move either.
What needs to happen is demolition to these houses that are blighted/burned/empty for years.
We have wasted millions for "studies", but when the question of why can't we address blight with demolition like Big Detroit did, the answer is always "no money".[ I know, I asked this question multiple times]

OH, I just remembered.
Cleveland also implemented the tear down of blighted properties.
What is Erie waiting for?
