AT A GLANCE
What Happens To A Burned Building? If the property’s uninsured, the Fire Department notifies Community Services. Owners have seven working days to show some clean-up progress. Owners then have 90 days to secure the structure, with the city checking in every couple of weeks. If that time passes with no progress, the condemnation and razing process begins. To report a suspicious property, call 575-8260.
