Baltimore starts demolition of block in sea of vacant houses

Work crews demolish a derelict block as Baltimore tries to reduce its sea of boarded-up properties, Wednesday, March 13, 2019. Mayor Catherine Pugh says her administration is committed to eliminating abandoned houses to “pave the way for new investment and long-awaited revitalization.” She got in an excavator Wednesday to start the demolition in a blighted swath of West Baltimore.
