ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Residents in a Rochester neighborhood reached out to News10NBC Wednesday for help dealing with a messy situation.
So, News10NBC checked out the abandoned home on Holbrooke Street. The home was consumed of trash, which according to neighbors, attracted rodents, roaches and more than two dozen cats.
On Thursday, News10NBC found city crews working at the home. However, we wanted to know how it got so bad in the first place since the house has been city-owned since January.
The city tells News10NBC that it took ownership in foreclosure but it doesn't take control until Friday.
The former owner was afforded due process and the eviction period ends Friday.
