Part of Havelock's Fire and Rescue department was demolished Wednesday morning.
The annex of the east end of the fire rescue department was torn down piece by piece. The building that was built in the mid 80s had mold, rotten wood and serious structural deficiencies.
Assistant city manager David Harvell says not all of the materials being torn down will be thrown out. "The concrete, the block will all be recycled into rock, the metal will be taken to the recycling place also, and the other material will be taken to the landfill. So generally speaking I'd say about 60-70 percent of the material will be recycled from this project."
The city of Havelock will rebuild about a 4,500 square foot fire station annex at a cost of $700,000. It's slated to be complete nine-months after the demolition is finished.
