SPEARFISH (AP) — Demolition work is underway on a Spearfish call center that collapsed under the weight of snow during an early October blizzard.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that the work began last week. Local contractor Johner and Sons received the nearly $50,000 bid to salvage any items of value and then raze the 50,000-square-foot building. The work is to wrap up in mid-May.

The 225 Spearfish workers with Iowa-based TMone have been operating out of the city's recreation center since the collapse of the building during the Oct. 4-5 storm, which dumped as much as 4 feet of snow on western South Dakota's Black Hills. No one was in the building when it collapsed, and computer servers were spared.
