OOPS – Sorry bout that!
How would you like to come home… and well, there’s no home. That’s what happened to this guy in Pittsburgh had his house leveled after city officials say a contractor mistakenly demolished it along with a neighboring house.
Homeowner Andre Hall says he’d already replaced the windows and done other work on the long-vacant house in the city’s West End neighborhood. But when he arrived to do more work Monday a backhoe was sitting on top of the rubble of his home.
The head of the city’s Bureau of Building Inspection says the house next door was supposed to be taken down but the contractor demolished Hall’s home as well.
The city solicitor’s office says it’s reviewing the matter. What’s to review? They knocked down the wrong house!
