Firefighters were called to a fire at an abandoned house just before 7 a.m. today at 317 N.W. 41st St.


Jordan Lee, who lives behind the house at 317 NW 41st Street, told MyBallard he was walking his dog when he smelled burning plastic.

He saw light smoke coming from the abandoned house and called 911. He tells us that the house has been boarded up for years. He didn’t see anyone leaving the house, in fact he’s never seen anyone at the house, but assumes squatters were trying to keep warm last night. According to a Tweet by King5unit9, who was on the scene, “There was one man occupying the vacant home. Unfortunately, he had a few cats and only 1 will probably live.”
