MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Four months after a deadly explosion that killed two school employees, Minnehaha Academy will soon take the next step forward in recovering Tuesday.

Demolition was scheduled to begin on a big part of the upper campus Tuesday, but Minnehaha officials say the work is delayed due to weather conditions. It is now expected to to begin Wednesday depending on the weather.

Debris removal is expected to take about two weeks.

Prior to this work, crews had to stabilize the athletic and arts wings of the school.

School leaders say originally, they were not designed as stand-alone buildings and needed to be reinforced before the central portion of the school could be removed.

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