A Stutz Excavating manager at the scene said the project will take a few days to tear down and remove the remnants.

He said workers would work through the day on Friday, then take off Saturday and be back on Monday to complete the demolition.

The back part of the building fell off this past Saturday, which pushed an urgency to demolish it.
