ALBION, NY - A more than 100-year-old warehouse on West Avenue met the wrecker's ball Friday afternoon, just about 24 hours after a major fire ripped through the structure.

Now the building is being demolished, although concerns remain about the safety of the people and structures close to the factory. For now, crews are pushing the outer walls inside, even as the fire continues to smolder inside.

Watch the video above to see a close call that occurred at the site on Friday. A fire chief narrowly avoids being crushed as one of the building's outer walls falls outside rather than inside the structure's footprint.

The demolition is expected to take a few days.
