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.
