Turn on the taps

"I actually pulled up here farther and water was coming out right here," pointing at an outside corner of the house.

Blowers says the owner plugged the bath tub above the kitchen on the second floor and turned on the faucet. Water flooded the bath room, leaked into the ceiling of the first floor and destroyed the kitchen.

Even the basement ceiling caved and the ground floor is drenched.

"To do this is kind of damage to a house or anything is foolish," said Blowers, who guesses the destruction was probably a final act of defiance.

"They blame the mortgage company, they took it out on the mortgage company but what they have to understand is they're still liable. They are still responsible for that house."
