Waiting On Imperial Demolition

The burned down Imperial Warehouse in Greenville has become a reminder of a terrible fire for many in the community and an eyesore and inconvenience for others.

It's been almost a year since the warehouse burned down and there's still a lot of dangerous debris lying around. The water tower and smoke stack also still remain.

Chief inspections officer Les Everett says the project is taking a long time because of the difficult structures and asbestos

Business owners and customers right next to the land said they can't wait for Atlantic Avenue to be open again because it has become such an inconvenience.

Everett says they are trying to do the project as quickly and safely as possible.

Everett says the next thing to come down will be the water tower, then the smokestack. They hope the demolition project will be complete within the next few months.

    If the City is involved, it will be a long drawn-out process.
