Despite Tragic Past, Humboldt County Property Transforms into a Successful Local Business


Although this property was the subject of municipal health and safety code enforcement efforts, the owners were uncooperative with officials and failed to remedy the violations of local and state laws. Years passed and the house languished in a dilapidated state until it was sadly engulfed by an electrical fire. Unfortunately, a friend of the owner was living in the attic at the time and tragically suffocated in the fire.
