Mizpah Demolished After Fatal Fire

What's left of the historic Mizpah Hotel in downtown Reno is being demolished.

Much of the building was destroyed in the Halloween night arson fire that killed 12 people and injured dozens of others.

A small wrecking crew Monday began tearing down the rest of the 84-year-old hotel.

Owners of the hotel have said they have no plans to rebuild on the site.

Last week, the Mizpah was used for training by Reno firefighters, who practiced knocking down doors, cutting through roofs and hauling heavy equipment up extension ladders.

No fires were set in the building during the training.
