Fire Damaged Lipton Tea Building Will Soon Be Demolished

Posted by wlpo on October 12, 2012

It’s been less than two months since a suspicious fire had the old Lipton Tea building ablaze in Streator.  Crews began demolition of the once historic building Monday.

Streator City Engineer Jeremy Palm says they hope to have reopened one lane Route 18 near the building by one tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.  The road near the building has been closed since the fire on August 19 because the building was no longer stable.  Palm says more of Route 18 will reopen as work progresses.

River City Demolition of Peoria is the company performing the job.  Palm says the land is scheduled to be filled in and seeded by Thanksgiving.
