A milestone in a project that's been underway for sometime now, Habitat for Humanity, Omaha tore down their 100th house Thursday.
It's all part of project demolition that started in 2011. With the help of students from King Science Center, Executive Director Amanda Brewer gave the first couple of whacks at ripping into this house. Brewer says this is an encouraging day which proves rebuilding one house at time can make a difference in Omaha.
“There's a lot of great houses already, but this eye sore brings down the property values, it makes it hard for people to sell there homes. this brings this neighborhood back on the market,” Brewer said.
Our cameras were let inside the house before crews went to work on it, there was a fire inside that forced the residents out. But now a new houses will be rebuilt in its place.
