City Subcontractors Demolish Wrong Home in Fort Worth

Neighbor says it's not the first time that's happened in the Lake Worth part of town


Imagine driving up to your home – or vacation home – and realizing it's not there.

It happened in the Lake Worth section of Fort Worth last Friday when a city subcontracted demolition crew took down the wrong house in the 9700 block of Watercress Drive.  The crews apparently demolished the house next door to what was the original targeted property.

"Typical city," said neighbor Stephen Neumann, laughing.
