NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - Fire crews have demolished portions of a luxury apartment complex under construction in southern Indiana that was heavily damaged by a weekend fire.

Saturday’s fire apparently started in a third-story unit at The Breakwater complex in downtown New Albany, just north of Louisville, Kentucky.

The News and Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2mClhQ0 ) fire crews razed portions of the building Sunday deemed unstable following the wind-driven fire.

The $26 million complex is being developed by Flaherty & Collins Properties. Company Senior Vice President Jill Herron says the fire is believed to have affected about 80 of 125 units in a building containing most of the project’s nearly 200 units.

That building was slated for testing and inspection in the coming weeks. The fire suppression system had not been activated.
