MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Lots of toys have been tossed, the basement trashed, and the bills over the last few years have totaled thousands. Sara Burns says this happens every time it rains.
When News 8 first introduced Burns three weeks ago she explained, "I can't go out and just pay for an attorney and everything else."
She says the property behind her home, owned by Fischel Properties, is causing her all the headaches. Burns said News 8 had her back.
"I think they saw it and saw how bad it was and they decided to help us out," Burns said.
She's talking about an area law firm holding Fischel Properties accountable. Three weeks ago her yard was a mess after three inches of rain in Milford.
"We had over a foot of water in the backyard," Burns said.
Now, there's the threat of Hurricane Sandy.
"There's nothing we can do to keep the water out, except them taking care of their property which they haven't done at all," Burns said.
News 8 took a trip to Fairfield to ask Fischel properties, "Why?" and if they plan to do something.
News 8 walked into the main office and asked for Mr. Eckman and told the woman at the front desk why they were there.
A minute later -- "Sorry, he's not in the office."
News 8's Erin Logan asked, "Do you know when he's going to be back? We've been trying to get in touch with him. It's supposed to rain this weekend. You don't think he's gonna speak?"
"No," the front desk woman said.
"These people have been waiting for two years. So he has no comment?" Logan asked.
"No comment," the woman said.
News 8 asked Burns what she would say to Mr. Eckman. She said, "I just want to know why they haven't even picked up the phone to say oh, we're going to do something to stop it from happening."
Burns says she's not giving up until she gets an answer.
