VIDEO: The City of Milwaukee is taking steps to tear down a home that some people have called a "hoarder house", which caught fire this weekend. Paul Hettwer, a retired sanitation worker, has owned the home for 25 years. He says he doesn't consider himself to be a hoarder, he just stashed things in hopes of someday giving them away. When the fire broke out early Saturday, firefighters say the stacks of belongings in the home put their safety at risk, but hettwer believes they may have saved his life.
