A two-story, wood-frame house on Detroit's northwest side became the 10,000th vacant structure torn down as part of Mayor Mike Duggan's massive plan to eliminate blight.
An excavator was used to quickly tear down the house Tuesday on Marlowe Street.
It was another win in a yearslong battle to improve Detroit neighborhoods.
Duggan's blight program started 2 1/2 years ago.
He said Tuesday that Detroit's demolition program is "moving much more efficiently" than others around the country.
