House destroyed by fire is condemned

The list of condemned houses in Logansport has increased to 50.

Logansport Building Commissioner Gary Hostetler reported to the Logansport Board of Public Works and Safety this week that the structure at 430 Helm St. has been condemned after a fire destroyed the building on April 18.

Hostetler said homeowner Troy Smith has already begun to clean up the property and tear down what remained of the building.

The Logansport Fire Department responded to the fire and began battling the blaze. However, Hostetler noted several structural compromises, and after consulting with Fire Chief Bob McMinn, firefighters were pulled back and the building was allowed to burn.

“I would like to commend the fire chief for pulling his men out,” said Hostetler. “When I got there, the front wall was bowed and it could have fallen. I think he made the right decision.”

Smith had been planning to demolish the building.

There are currently 11 buildings in the city that are pending demolition.
