An overnight fire in Homewood went to three alarms.
A firefighter was injured while fighting a fire in Beltzhoover Thursday morning.
The cleanup started Friday inside of an apartment that was the home of a habitual hoarder. A week ago, Allegheny County Sheriff’s deputies ordered Ken Goldsmith out of his apartment in Friendship after a 10-month battle with his landlord, Connie Lucey.
A man labeled as a hoarder by authorities is out of his apartment in Friendship. Ken Goldsmith grabbed three bags and walked out Friday. He had refused to leave for 10 months.
A local woman’s yearlong battle to get a hoarder out of her apartment has taken an ugly turn. Connie Lucey says a tenant who refuses to leave her Friendship apartment in now buried under 10-feet of garbage.
Allegheny County sheriff’s deputies posted an eviction notice for 11 a.m. Thursday to the door of Ken Goldsmith’s apartment. Goldsmith, a so-called hoarder, lives in Pittsburgh’s Friendship neighborhood.
Garbage and junk piled high – insects buzzing around the ceiling. That is how investigators describe the apartment of a man they call a hoarder. And they say – this is not the first time he has done this.
