Swbaby12345 and Maddog, I'll be going past that location later today and will try to grab a pic. As stated in the previous thread “Incinerator The Bigger Problem!” I believe there is an arsonist afoot in that area and the photos posted there bares this out. This topic warrants its own thread, and perhaps I’ll start a one on the “Firehouses” board. Stay tuned Quick Pic fans

Here are a quick couple of pics of the St. Aubin fire:

There was a recent fire at this home on the 94 service drive just east of Dubois:

I would guess that 90% of the houses in the area west of Chene, north of Warren, east of St. Aubin, and south of I 94 are gone or fire damaged. The whole area has been fitted with underground infrastructure over the last year or so. I would bet when the last one goes, new building will commence hence forth. Does anyone with the city have knowledge of plans or intent for this land?

They did the same thing in the area surrounded by Miller,St.Cyril,Huber,and Mt.Elliot..I believe there is a corporate arsonist going around. For a while it seemed there were three or four fires a day.

Hi. I was reading through this discussion when I found a picture of my Aunt's house mentioned in this thread. A bit of background on the place, for those who are interested:

I work on Huber, and I smell fire all the time in the midnight shifts. There is supposed to be new development in both of the above areas.
Housing on the Chene and I94 side I was told by a planner. Not to long ago, there was talk of the African Town being developed over there. i am not so sure about those plans anymore.
In the Huber area I heard that the area is slated for Technology and Office parks. I am not sure how true this is either

Dearlydeparted, first, allow me to welcome you to Detroityes on behalf of us all. I read through your post and sighed. I have been posting photos of your Aunt's neighborhood for a little over 3 months now with the hope of finding you. Not you in particular, but those who could offer the history and stories that these homes hold. I have gotten only one other response, and now yours. I have been roundly criticized for posting the pictures here by some, and have gotten praise by others. But what I really wanted was what you so thoughtfully posted for us here: Soul Stories. I want to thank you for the linkage, and the time, trouble, and heart ach you have so generously shared. THANKS!http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s22/bulletmagnet69/100_2649.jpg?t=1176757825

I lived there for many years . I grew up on East Kirby and used to go to Dan and Vi's right there on the corner of chene and 94.
gee, that would be spectacular if they started rebuilding over there.

Wally2times welcome to Detroityes! If you have any stories, photos, or memories, feel free to post them here. I am in that neighborhood nearly every day, and I often wonder what tales these homes would tell.
