SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane home is completely gutted out after neighbors called city officials to haul away several garbage trucks worth of trash from the home's yard. 

Spokane's Neighborhood Resource Program and Code Enforcement Program say they've received so many complaints about the garbage that pours out of the home in the 900 block of Helena, they had to step in. 

The city sent numerous letters and called the owners for several months to tell them to clean it all up and when their was no response or any attempt to fix the yard, they said it was time to take matters into their own hands.

Eveyone Blair, the home owner, admits some of the items hauled away were trash, but most of the stuff she says were things her family needed. Blair says she's tired of being harassed by her neighbors and the city and plans to fight to get her stuff back.

"We're the owners, because we've lived here for 30 years," said Blair. " We have the right to own something as a home owner and as citizens, we have just as much right to have garbage in our yard, it's fenced in."

Blair says her family has already hired a lawyer and plans to sue the city. At this point though, Spokane Officials say while they understands the family is upset, they did try to warn them several times that this would happen and don't think the lawsuit will hold up in court.
