PULASKI TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A community in Beaver County is upset.

“In my 21 years in this business I have never seen anything like it,” Pulaski Township Building Code Inspector John Clay said.

He’s talking about a rat-infested house on 44th Street. Clay went inside the house and says he saw as many as 1,500 rats.

Most of them are dead now after an exterminator placed poison in and around the house.

The house is owned by Debi Adams, a French and Spanish teacher at Beaver Falls High School.

She told Clay with her husband’s illness and financial problems she left the house in August and everything inside including several dogs.

Her actions angered her neighbors. Mary Juillerat says she felt sorry for Adams but not anymore.

“I am mad and I don’t care who knows it,” she said.

The house will be torn down 7:30 a.m. Friday and a one-block area will be evacuated.

Since Adams agreed to have the house torn down, she will not be fined by the township.

The dogs she left behind were turned over to the Beaver County Humane Society.
