FORT WORTH (CBS 11 NEWS) – Fort Worth officials say the city has ceased all demolition operations until it can figure out how two buildings that were not supposed to be demolished were torn down by a contractor despite city oversight.
“It was human error,” said Fort Worth spokesperson Bill Begley. “There were two different types of human error.”
The city says the first mistake happened on Lagonda Avenue in north Fort Worth.
A contractor was supposed to knock down a fire damaged building. They tore it down, but they also knocked down a small living quarters behind the house.
“It was not supposed to be knocked down and it was not a part of demolition order,” Begley said.
The family who owns the property says the building was vacant but had clothes and family pictures stored in it.
