Complications In Demolishing Burned Out Business

Questions remain about why a burned out building is still standing six months after it was torched by arsonists in Greenville.

The former Fulcher Tire Service building still sits on South Memorial Drive in Greenville, fenced off. According the city of Greenville, the property owner, Todd Fulcher has not made preparations to have it demolished.

Last month Fulcher filed for bankruptcy protection, so that means taxpayers may have to help foot the bill. Besides that, city attorney David Holec says safety is the main concern. "It's unsafe as it exists now, it's not posing a threat to the person who happens to walk outside of the property or adjacent to the property, it's not an immediate threat to persons, it's been secured, it is something we want to have cleaned up."

The city has filed papers to have the building demolished through another party that is interested in buying it.

    Ignorance is unlimited...very obvious with the previous post. Todd has done more with his life and helped more people than you could than most people ever do in their life times.

    it is funny how they owned not only this location but the one in new bern as well. it strikes me funny that the one in new bern closed up just a few short months after this one was torched., why is this. economy is bad but why risk insurance fraud to get some money?

    I know Todd. His dad had a booming business long ago. A different time, a different place. Things never stay the same.
