IT'S GETTING HOT UP IN HERE: Bay City Home Owned by Traverse City Charter School Hustler Steve Ingersoll Burns...Police and Fire Department Investigating

HOME PART OF "REDEVELOPMENT" SCHEME TO CREATE "FRONT PORCH LIVING" COMMUNITY; ONE OF EIGHT PROPERTIES WITH DELINQUENT TAXES
 
A Bay City home owned by Traverse City optometrist and charter school hustler Steven Ingersoll was destroyed by "an undetermined fire" late Friday afternoon.

Bay City Fire Chief Karey Prieur said yesterday that the fire appeared to have been burning for some time before neighbors spotted the flames just after 5:00 p.m. Prieur said there was heavy fire and smoke on the second floor and burned up into the attic of the house.

Bay City property records listed a taxable value of just under $8,500.

The vacant home, shown in the photos above and left, was part a renovation plan Ingersoll promised when he purchased $750,000 worth of properties between 1991 and 2010. The properties include homes on Bay City's East Side, commercial structures and the Bay City Academy charter school.

On April 15, 2013, Ingersoll stood in front of the Bay City Commission, explained that he had fallen behind by $29,081.02 total in paying taxes on eight properties that are receiving city and other tax breaks in order to concentrate funds both on a bed and breakfast known as the Perry House, 2230 Center, and Farragut School near the corners of 9th, 10th and Grant streets. Although Ingersoll claimed at the time that both establishments would open later that summer, both remain closed.
