A fire in the city of Lockport will force the total demolition of a building that dated back nearly 140 years.

Fire crews were called to the scene of the former Kohl's Cycle Sales on Gooding Street for a major fire on Tuesday afternoon. 

According to a report, teenagers had been seen leaving the building just before the fire started. The city had previously hoped to knock that building down, but preservationists had opposed.

Now, and emergency demolition will start soon, possibly as early as today.
