Changes are occurring at an Indian Village property that was destroyed in a fire.

The property of 2061 Narragansett Avenue, located just off of Pelham Parkway, is currently being demolished.

Much of the property’s frontage is covered with wood and debris from the trees that were just cut down.

The 1,536 square foot house, which was built in 1930, may not be standing much longer.

According to the NYC Building Information System, there have been two applications filed placed to demolitish the 2.5 story, one-family frame dwelling and a one-story frame garage.

Last year, the 85-year old home was the scene of an inferno. On the morning of January 4, the FDNY responded to a fire that started near the chimney and gutted a good portion of the second floor.

“That (the fire) was an unfortunate scenario,” said Frank Vignali, who lives a few blocks south of the property and whose son was a responder during the incident. “It looks like this property is being cleaned up, because this is an eyesore for our neighborhood.”

An application is expected shortly to construct one or two homes on the site.
