Carl Junction Church Tear Down Put on Hold: Waiting on DNR

Carl Junction Church Tear Down Put on Hold: Waiting on DNR

The process of tearing down the remains of the Carl Junction United Methodist Church that burned down, has been put on hold to possible asbestos in the building.
CARL JUNCTION, MO---The church burned down early in the morning on Thursday, August 7th after it was struck by lightning. Carl Junction Fire Chief Bill Dunn hired Gator Demolition to tear down the remains of the building over a week ago. But the process is getting delayed since the company needs to get clearance of asbestos in the building from the department of natural resources before they can proceed with the demolition.

Chief Bill Dunn says, "It could be in sheet rock, could be in carpet, could be in a lot of things if it's made from out of this country and shipped into the U.S. so that's the reason why they require a permit." Dunn hopes to hear back from Gator Demolition Monday. After church leaders finish this process, then they will decide on an architect for the new church. Dunn doesn't have any estimates of how long this process will take.
