THE BRONX - Residents say the old lot where a Foodtown supermarket used to exist is disgusting and hasn?t been cleaned since last December.

The former supermarket was destroyed in a fire in December and the owner has not been able to clean due to an arson investigation. However, residents say the spoiled food and debris is attracting rats into nearby homes.

Crews did begin cleanup this month but stopped soon after, residents said.
