Updated:GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. —
For more than a year, neighbors in a Gwinnett County neighborhood have been battling to get a home torn down that was the site of a deadly meth lab explosion.
Three children, all under the age of 5, died when chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine ignited in February 2011. Their mother and two men were charged with murder and drug-related offenses.
The home on Spring Mill Drive has been sitting vacant and boarded up since. Neighbors have said the home is not only an eyesore, but a constant reminder of the tragedy.
City code enforcement officers visited the home several times and issued citations but could not locate an owner. Eventually, Chase Bank was contacted, and Gwinnett County police said the home will be torn down Wednesday.
