Fire at Elmhurst hoarder house
For years neighbors have been complaining about the unsightly mess of piles of trash in the front and back yard and also of the threat of fire to the other attached homes. Multiple visits by the DOB, Sanitation, Fire Dept., mental health workers and even Councilman Dromm couldn't convince the woman to clean up her act even when faced with fines.
I've watched the TV show Hoarders many times and in some of the cases the municipality will evict the homeowner if they don't clean up the house. It seems NYC doesn't have the same regulations.Anyway now all the yard trash is gone but I heard it's a real mess inside." - anonymous
