Bid awarded to demolish Evansville warehouse


The Evansville Board of Public Safety has picked a company to demolish a warehouse which caved in after a massive fire last year. 

The warehouse is located in the 1000 block of Maryland Street. 

Building Commissioner Ron Beane says a bid of over $80,000 was awarded.

A lawsuit against the owner is still in the works, but the Department of Metropolitan Development is now putting up $40,000 to help remove the dangerous structure.

Since it's deemed an emergency, Beane says work should begin within the next month.
