LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Demolition has finally begun on Eden Specialty Care, which was damaged by a tornado in 2015.

The City of Longview extended the deadline to tear down the building until August 7. Property owners had to have the building sealed with plastic since it contains asbestos. The building will slowly be demolished and hauled away.

If the building is not removed by the new deadline they will be fined $1000 dollars a day until demolition is complete.
