Another eyesore is demolished in Kansas City.

Crews on Friday morning began tearing down a dangerous, burned out house near 59th and Prospect.

City councilwoman Alissia Canady says the home was vacant for nearly 3 years. 

"This property coming down is a sign to this community that we are focused on revitalizing every building in the Blue Hills neighborhood," Canady told KMBZ.

She says it cost about $8,000-$10,000 to tear the house down. It is part of the city’s ongoing effort to remove blighted and dangerous buildings from the city’s landscape.
