Wells-Goodfellow: Burn Out


Update: This house had collapsed by March 2017. The rubble was finally cleared by the summer of 2019.

This house was right next door to that white house from two days ago, but I thought I would separate it out for special attention. I could smell the burned wood, and the plywood on the windows is still fresh, so this fire clearly did not happen very long ago. From the looks of it, the house was probably built when this section of the city was still rural, and it slowly welcomed its new brick neighbors as the decades passed. It sits in isolation, surrounded by that famous Wells-Goodfellow underbrush that has grown extra thick this year due to the wet summer, and it now decays as the leaves fall off the trees.
