Demolition of the second smoke stack at the Sappi Paper Mill in Muskegon happened Sunday, Oct. 1 at 9 a.m.

The first smoke stack was demolished back in July of this year.

Just like last time, there was a 1,000-foot perimeter around the demolition area -- which applied to both on land and in the lake. That perimeter was set up from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m Sunday morning.

Residents who live within 500-feet of the demolition zone were asked to evacuate their homes. Anyone living within 1,000-feet was asked to take shelter in a safe place or evacuate. Residents were permitted to return home once the street barricades are taken down.

Officials closed Lakeshore Drive at Cottage Grove Street and McCracken Street. According to a news release from the Muskegon Police Department, LaRue, Clifford and Sherin were also closed.
