House damaged by arson last year is demolished

The rental house at 108 NW 84th St. that was badly damaged in an arson last year, has been demolished. This afternoon, you can see the pile of debris, large dumpster and equipment from NW 84th St.

From the alley, there’s just a little bit of house left standing.

You can still see the charred wood from the arson.

Carlos Salmeron, who was living in the lower level of the house at the time, was badly burned in the fire, set by Kevin Todd Swalwell. Swalwell later admitted to setting 11 fires, including the massive Oct. 23 fire that destroyed four businesses in downtown Greenwood. In May, Swalwell was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
Thanks to Lynn for the tip.
