MACON, Ga. -- Remnants of a historic cotton mill in Macon are being salvaged after a devastating fire last year.
The Telegraph reports that the walls that once formed Macon's historic Atlantic Cotton Mill are now huge piles of red brick.
Only the site's towering smokestack remains after nearly three weeks of demolition work.
Jerry Carpenter of Carpenter Construction in Warner Robins said his company was hired to demolish the buildings and salvage the bricks that survived the blaze.
In March 2011, the mill caught fire, spewing dark smoke across the city. The blaze was deemed an accidental fire.
The land is owned by Mercer University. School spokesman Larry Brumley said no final decisions have been made about what will happen with the property.
