MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Demolition crews braved the cold weather Thursday began tearing down the second, fire-damaged building in downtown Meridian.

A fire destroyed the two abandoned and historic buildings earlier this month. The demolition project will cost $275,000.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Homeless people often used one of the buildings as a place to get out of the elements and stay warm.

We’ll have more on this story tonight on Newscenter 11.
