Abandoned Buildings Can and Do Cause Problems
This abandoned turn of the century hotel in Kellogg, Idaho caught on fire and was a total loss. There was no electricity or other utilities at the building. Although it is easy to forget about these buildings, it is critical they be looked at from time to time for potential damage problems. This particular building had squatters living in the building.
As a result of this complete loss building's fire, all of the surrounding buildings experienced significant smoke and water damage. The fire was so hot the fire department needed to keep a constant water flow on several of the adjacent buildings to make sure they did not catch on fire as well.
SERVPRO of Rexburg, Idaho was called in by several of the businesses and building owners to help fix the fire and water damaged areas.
