Real Estate: Arizona/Abandoned home

Hi. I live in Central Phx, in a very nice neighborhood. The house next door to me has been abandoned for several years now, and it's a REAL fire hazard. I would like to know who to contact, to get the yards cleaned up, or to have the house demolished. The doors and SOME windows are boarded up, all overgrown dried up vegetation, and I'm afraid if this place catches fire, my home will also be subject to fire. The field mice must be having a great time in this house, as well as other rodents. It's absolutely pathetic, and I need to know what can be done. Please be specific as to who I can contact, or what website I can go to, perhaps to file a complaint. Should I just call my local fire department, or just what? Thank you so much for your advice!

The city of Phoenix neighborhood service department is where you want to go file a complaint.  Here is the website link.
They will follow up and contact the owner along with clean up and or fines.  If not cleaned up by the owner the city will do it and charge back the owner.
