Aftermath of House Fire, West High Street, Lima, Ohio

There have been entirely too many house fires in my city in the past year and a half. I suppose that one house fire is a fire too many, but I’ve lost track of all the reports of burnt homes in the local news. When I spotted the property shown in this post over the weekend, I had no memory at all of reading about this particular house fire.

For Sale

Some commercial real estate is utterly forgettable to me. I really had to reflect on whether the building above is still standing or if it ever sold. I drive by it several times a year, yet I do not look at it. I had to consult Google Street View to see if it was still standing, but it could have been demolished yesterday for all I know. Its Street View image doesn’t show much change except for a coat of gray paint and a lack of a “For Sale” sign.
