Alaska demolition crew destroys wrong building

Posted: Sunday, October 17, 2010

ANCHORAGE - An Alaska Demolition crew asked to tear down three small concrete buildings at a park destroyed a fourth building by mistake.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the fourth building torn down at Russian Jack Springs Park this week was a storage facility for a Girl Scouts of Alaska summer day camp.

Anchorage Parks and Recreation officials had decided to remove three structures in the area that were being vandalized and used for what director John Rodda described as "negative behavior."

At some point, an Alaska Demolition crew realized they had started to destroy the wrong building. But Rodda said damage was substantial enough to the 16-by-16 foot building that he decided it should be completely torn down.

Alaska Demolition plans to replace any damaged items from the storage building.
