Fox News: A visit by building inspectors to the home of the alleged kidnappers of Jaycee Dugard revealed the squalor they lived amid in their California home.

Contra Costa County building inspectors examined Phillip and Nancy Garrido's home August 31 at the request of the sheriff's office and determined it to be unsafe to occupy.

Newly released photos taken by inspectors revealed the filth and waste that filled the home.

Among the violations reportedly found that were listed by inspectors were "hazardous wiring used for occupancy, piles of garbage, refuse, discarded furniture, discarded appliances, yard cuttings, cardboard boxes and barrels, discarded personal and household items, improperly stored non operational vehicles, vehicle parts, tarps, plastic and metal buckets, open septic hole and outside toilet that is not connected to a sewer or septic system."

The Contra Costa Times reported Phillip Garrido's mother, who is the registered owner of the home, was ordered to clean up the property before county officials conduct a cleaning at her expense.

Meanwhile, authorities said Thursday that cadaver dogs picked up a scent that could indicate buried remains in the backyard of the Garridos.

Alameda County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson said two dogs "indicated" on a site in their backyard. But he cautioned that the area is known to have buried remains from Native Americans and animals.

The Garridos are charged with the 1991 kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard, who was snatched outside her South Lake Tahoe home when she was an 11. Prosecutors say the Garridos held her captive in their backyard for 18 years. The couple has pleaded not guilty.
