UPDATE: Elmira Home Condemned

     ELMIRA - [WENY]      Neighbors say that code enforcement officers will be on Juanita Street in Elmira to conduct inspections. More homes could be condemned.
     On Tuesday afternoon, code enforcement officers condemned a home on Juanita Street after inches of raw sewage flooded the basement, and the family that lives there was forced to leave. Neighbors say that the problem was caused when the county blocked off one end of the sewer line, but the county says that homeowners need a backflow preventer. So far, sewage has backed up into 5 different homes on Juanita Street.
     Neighbors say that code enforcement will be back for inspections on Wednesday morning, and more homes could be condemned.
