RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Residents in Ridgeland are happy to see a neighborhood eyesore crushed to pieces.

Construction crews tore down a dilapidated home on Wheatley Road Wednesday morning.

Ridgeland officials say the former homeowner received multiple violations of city codes and ordinances for not keeping the home up to par.

Homeowner Celeste McGregor says the rundown home caused issues for her home.

"Storm drain water has been the problem for us because we're getting water from this side and the backside and it's affected our house especially the other day when it rained, water almost got in our home," McGregor said.

McGregor says the torn down home was an eyesore for at least ten years.
