"There’s a lot of stress,” said Mayor Barrett. “The living conditions here-this is obviously a poor neighborhood and I don’t know how many people lived in this house. I don’t know if there was more than one family. But again, this is a stressful period and we’ll have to wait and see exactly what happened here.”
