Texas crew mistakenly demolishes the wrong house
A woman was trying to figure out what to do after a demolition crew wrongly tore down most of her house, instead of one across the street. Francis Howard told the Denton Record-Chronicle that “I don’t have the words to say” about what happened to her family’s longtime home. The 69-year-old woman, who lives with her son in Frisco, said Monday that the family had resided in the Denton home for 47 years.
Much of the house was demolished April 21.
City records show the house that was supposed to be demolished was ordered in January to be repaired or torn down, due to unkept lawns, outside storage, junked vehicles and failure to secure the structure.
The landlord of the property that was to have been demolished declined comment.
