A JPS Health Network building demolition in downtown Fort Worth entered its final phase on Tuesday.
JPS representative Diana Carroll said the remnants of the St. Joseph Hospital complex in the 1400 block of S. Main Street was scheduled to fall.
Police and firefighters initially reported to FOX 4 News early Tuesday that the towering five-story wall (pictured) was possibly unstable, prompting them to cordon off the area.
However, Carroll said, a lane closure was a planned part of the demo and that no danger was present.
"The demolition of the vacant St. Joseph complex has been intricately planned by D.H. Griffin of Texas. This is the last phase of demolition and a lane closure was expected and submitted to the city," Carroll said in a statement released to FOX 4 News.
"There is no danger of the last section of the building coming down in an uncontrolled fashion. We are pleased with the progress of the demolition and today's lane closure is a precaution only."
