TOLEDO - A house along Columbus in north Toledo has three broken doors, which means anyone can enter at any time.
And, the house is a mess.
"They took all the plumbing out, the heating system, the furnace," said Richard Bigelow about the house, which he says has been vacant for three years.
Also annoying Bigelow is the pool, which is full of murky water, trash and an assortment of insects.
"I'm afraid my grandkids are around here and they'll get bit," Bigelow said. "I want them to get rid of this house or the pool or something."
Call 11 for Action problem solver Mika Highsmith contacted the city, and they say they will give the owner 72 hours to comply. Otherwise, they say they will step in and do it themselves.
Call 419-936-2020 if you have a similar problem.
