FORT BRANCH, Ind. (AP) — The new owner of the fire-damaged ruins of a former meat packing plant in southwestern Indiana is moving ahead with plans to demolish buildings at the site.
Jim Pohl of A&T Concrete recently purchased the former Emge plant site in the Gibson County town of Fort Branch. He tells the Princeton Daily Clarion work will begin Monday to clear away rubble and brush, and that demolition of buildings at the site will begin once a state permit is approved.
The former Emge meat-packing plant closed in 1999 after 90 years of operation. A June 2010 fire heavily damaged the building about 20 miles north of Evansville.
Several businesses operate in intact warehouses at the site, but Pohl says he'll honor their leases until they expire next June.
