Neighbors want vacant building demolished after 2nd fire

CLAREMONT -

Neighbors are hoping the city will demolish a vacant building on Franklin Avenue following two fires.

A massive two-alarm fire tore through the building Monday night. The building had been boarded up after a previous fire, but neighbors say that didn't stop people from coming in and out of it at night.

The New York City Department of Buildings was still at the scene Wednesday. They told News 12 that the building has been scheduled to be torn down and that city agencies will oversee that it get's done.

The owner has also hired an engineer to oversee the demolition.
