Baltimore’s City Department of Housing had summoned a crew from the company K&K Adams to knock down the building at 212 E. Fort Avenue because of a growing crack in the wall between the two rowhouses that made it unstable.

The owner of the 214 E. Fort Avenue building and the neighbours were not notified in advance because it was an emergency demolition, city officials told The Baltimore Sun.

Joseph Rene, the owner of the fortuitously smashed building, seemed to take it in stride.

“We’ll reconstruct it,” Rene told the newspaper. “We have no other option.”
