HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV) –Two days after a suspicious fire gutted the Majestic Hotel in Hot Springs, the spa city turned to demolition.
"This is a piece of history that I hate to see it go down," said Hot Springs resident Maxine Stewart. "I'm here to get in some pictures, so I have some memories of it."
The demolition began Friday night and throughout Saturday afternoon, a crane slowly took the century-old building apart.
"Well, it's kind of sad; it's historic, and it's just a lot of memories I'm sure for a lot of people," said onlooker Sherri Speidan.
