MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — School leaders say unanticipated additional work will delay the demolishing of Minnehaha Academy.

Two employees died Aug. 2 when a gas leak sparked an explosion at the century-old school.

The core of the building was so badly shaken that the section must be completely rebuilt.

A letter from the school’s president says it is also working to restore electricity and heat to the undamaged wings for the wintertime, and re-sodding the soccer field to ensure no glass shards remain.

The school is using the Brown College campus as its temporary home this school year.
