Family of residents who live in the building report that three people are still missing. Yet a backhoe is already taking down the building, which would be extremely dangerous to enter due to all the fire and water damage.
According to a WCCO report, Assistant Fire Chief Cherie Penn promised that crews will be cautious as they take down the three-story building, which passed a fire inspection in 2012. The cause of the blaze still hasn't been determined.
Here's a photo of the demolition crew in action:
