City officials say a demolition crew will now assess the site.

“They’ll determine when it’s time to start wrapping the site with the poly-cover. Then after that it will sit for 10 days,” said  Jamestown Director of Development Crystal Surdyk. “We’ll continue to monitor the site to make sure the fence is still in place and no one has entered the site.”

Jamestown police have charged two teenage girls with arson.

The suspects are facing charges in family court.
