Crews with Wrecking Ball Demolition started tearing down the second of two run-down houses on Lynn Street last Tuesday.
The houses – 2512 and 2315 – in the Columbia neighborhood were the subject of complaints for more than a decade. Steven K. Baker owns the houses and will continue to own the properties after the tear-downs.
Crews tore down 2512 Lynn St. on Oct. 23. The City of Bellingham is spending up to $150,000 to raze the houses and for cleanup because the properties posed a public health threat and were a public nuisance, officials said.
