More from the Avenue G fire scene

Friday afternoon's fire at a brick apartment building on the 400 block of Avenue G left all tenants displaced until further notice, despite the best efforts of fire departments who fought the two-alarm blaze. After several hours containing the fire and tamping out hot spots, personnel from Columbia, Wrightsville, Blue Rock, and other companies began packing up equipment. Some personnel remained at the scene.

Two state police fire marshalls continued investigating the scene to determine the origin and cause of the fire.

The American Red Cross was also on scene, helping displaced tenants find temporary shelter at local motels and elsewhere.

This morning (Sunday), Columbia Spy noted window openings had been boarded up with plywood, and a CONDEMNED notice, designating the property as "Unfit for Human Occupancy," was posted on entry doors.

  1. Ok so let's face facts,,,, I chased the slum lord for a comment just today, Monday,, labor day.
    Mmm The PUBLIC CAN judge me anyway you want.
    It's irrelevant to me or my bank account.
    Bottom line is,,, the SLUM LORD NEEDS TO BE A DRESSED AND ADDRESSED SEVERLY.
    Personally for what he has cost this BORO,,, My vote goes to , TAKING DOWN THE BIGGEST PROBLEM, aka locust st... then handing the land over to the owners of PERFECT SETTINGS!!!!!!
    BAM!!!!
    House of Pagan has suffered the MOST!
    TAX PAYERS AND PROPERTY OWNERS HAVE SUFFERED
    COLUMBIA HAS SUFFERED
    TIME TO PAY THE PIPER!!!!
    OH NO,,, Call the police, call an attorney, file charges any which way you want...

  4. If all this is true, HOW does it go on and on with little or no consequence? The borough has to come down harder on these so called "slum lords". The borough has a lawyer, can he advise them on harsher action?

  5. Maybe the town property owners also has a LAWYER.
    As o see it the BORO has a lawyer...
    So that LAWYER is the property owners LAWYER,, I think.
    Our taxes pay him,,,.
    I know I'm judge by untrained people as impaired, but god did bless me with many things.
    One is over abundance of common sense.
    Hence a problem solver.
    Well I just derailed.
    Tear the place down give the land to the neighbor, House of pagan.
    Look what happened to the family that owns LAKEMONT FARMS A FEW YEARS BACK.
    USE EMINENT DOMAIN OR SUE BIGLER.

    GIVE THE PROPERTY FOR COURTYARD EVENTS.
    VISIT LANCASTER AND JUST TAKE TIME TO,,,, EXHALE.
    I'M WAITING TO EXHALE.
    FYI HOUSE FOR SALE...
    POOF
