MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Demolition crews are tearing down a large commercial building in Minneapolis that was declared unstable after a two-alarm fire.

The building housed a day care center, deli and auto repair business.

Firefighters continued to extinguish hot spots Thursday at the burned building near the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium.

Neighbors were temporarily evacuated as the fire burned overnight. An old 200-foot radio tower tethered to the building toppled during the fire.

Assistant Fire Chief Cherie Penn says no firefighters or civilians were injured. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
