At least one house in Atlanta, Florida, has ended up with an accident.
The house’s builder is facing criminal charges after the house, located in an area called the “Great Swamp,” became a home for an unknown number of residents.
The homeowner says the house was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s by the developer.
“We never did have any problems.
We just had a little problem with one of the people that lived there,” the homeowner told ABC News.
The building has been boarded up since the accident, and authorities say they have no idea who was living in the house at the time.
But the house’s owner is looking to make it right.
“[The homeowner] told me, ‘Hey, you’re gonna have to pay for it,’ ” Atlante County sheriff’s deputy Travis Jones told The Associated Press.
The homeowners is asking the court to declare the house a blighted home.
In Florida, the homeowner must show that the house is “abandoned, vacant, or abandoned in the condition it was in when the house first came into the state.”
The owner of the house has a history of serious problems with neighbors, including an arrest on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
The sheriff’s office has said that the case remains open.
