Opera House demolition causes problems for newly rebuilt business

CANTON - The demolition of the Opera House in Canton isn't going as planned.

Late Wednesday, WMBD got a tip that part of the building had fallen into Advanced Rehab and Sports Medicine Services, which is next door. The business had recently undergone major reconstruction following the November 2016 explosion that rocked downtown Canton, killing one Ameren Illinois employee. 

The demolition of the Opera House began early Wednesday.
