For my international readers, "Fixer-upper" is a colloquial American term for a house or car that is cheap because it needs some repairs. Obviously, this dwelling is beyond repair, but I feel the humor.

Wow, what a mess ! The object now is to keep the drug people out so they don't get hurt. I wonder why the owner doesn't tear it down and preserve the property?
