SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Demolition has been delayed for a building in Springfield, Vermont, that was gutted by a fire five years ago.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2nD0Tmg ) Crown Point Excavating planned to raze the building last week. The project was delayed due to heavy snow.

A November 2012 fire destroyed the home.

The structure will be razed and the lead-concentrated debris shipped to a landfill in upstate New York.

Town officials say asbestos has been removed from the home. Further tests uncovered high levels of lead.

The cost for demolition and shipping the debris is nearly $8,000. The town will place a lien on the property to recoup its expenses.
