SHAMOKIN ---Two homes that started to collapse nearly a week ago in Shamokin are being torn down.

Newswatch 16 was there Saturday after crews took down the abandoned double-block home on West Spruce Street.

The building was slated to come down. But the rear collapsed suddenly Monday.

City officials then went ahead with an emergency demolition.

Neighbors say grass will be planted after all the debris is removed in Northumberland County.
