LARAMIE - Crews have demolished the roof of the decrepit Fox Theater in downtown Laramie.

Full demolition of the old theater is planned this spring or summer.

The city decided to demolish the roof amid concerns that it could cave in.

Laramie Community Development Director Peter Wysocki says Monday's roof demolition went well and there were no surprises. Crews wetted down the theater beforehand to keep down dust.

After the demolition, a structural analyst inspected the building from a crane to make sure the structure was still sound.

The Fox Theater was built in 1912 and has been vacant since the 1970s.
