Demolition crews have moved in and started work at the Totem 1 apartment building.

A crowd gathered Thursday afternoon to watch the first phase of the demolition, which could last several days. The Totem 1 apartment building caught fire on Friday April 16th and displaced more than 60 people.

To date, Sterling Management has raised over $6,400 for the victims of the fire. After the fire, Fort St. John residents showed overwhelming support and donated clothing, household items and money to the cause.

With the help of specialized equipment, residents have been able to collect small personal items including paperwork, jewelry and photos.

The owner of the apartment is planning on re-building and hopes to have a new building in place as soon as possible.
