MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Demolition of a Minneapolis school damaged in an explosion earlier this year is set to begin next week.

A gas leak at Minnehaha Academy on Aug. 2 sparked an explosion that destroyed portions of the Upper Campus and killed two school employees.

The demolition was delayed because the athletic and arts wings of the school, which bookended the destroyed portion, needed to be stabilized so they could stand on their own.

The school said removing debris from the site will take about two weeks, and once that is completed the destroyed portion will be pulled down.
