PACIFICA, Calif. (AP) — Officials in Northern California say work crews will tear down a second vacant apartment building that massive erosion had left teetering on the edge of a cliff in the city of Pacifica.
Pacifica City Manager Lorie Tinfow said Sunday the 20-unit coastal complex will be demolished on Tuesday.
A neighboring two-story building was razed in February by its owner. It had been vacant since its 12 units were red-tagged after a storm in 2010.
Officials say they are trying to get the owner of the third apartment building to demolish it.
The bluff was once big enough to accommodate playgrounds and a swimming pool in the space between three apartment complexes and the cliff in Pacifica, one of the most erosion-prone stretches of the state's coastline.
