Grain elevator tower tumbles into Buffalo River
The tower of the Wheeler Grain Elevator collapsed into the Buffalo River on Friday.
No injuries were reported. Members of the demolition crew, Ontario Specialty Contracting, claim that it was a planned fall. But local preservationist Tim Tielman argues that the incident was an error and blames the city for not better overseeing the work.
A local traffic bridge was closed until the scene was secured.
The city issued an emergency demolition for the structure earlier in the year.
