BARRETT TOWNSHIP -- State officials say the owners of a building being demolished in Monroe County need to explain themselves.
Crews are knocking down a former elementary school in the Mountainhome area, but the Department of Environmental Protection says the notice of demolition expired.
The DEP said the owners, who are from Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, filed a notice of demolition and asbestos abatement over the summer. The paperwork expired at the end of September and was never renewed.
DEP surveyed the site when crews started demolition in November and gave the OK to continue. Crews are under orders to stop working if they find any asbestos.
A spokesperson with DEP said the owners will get a notice of violation for not properly renewing the paperwork and could face a fine.

Outdoor and sports minded enthusiasts will love Buck Hill Falls and all it has to offer. Families will appreciate the organized summer camp and youth programs, cultural events, and scenic beauty of this hidden gem of a community situated on 4,500 pristine acres of private land. Founded in 1901 by Philadelphia Quakers Buck Hill Falls has over 300 "cottages" built between 1901 and 2009 that are enjoyed by their owners either as a weekend and vacation getaway or full-time residence.
“Buck Hillers” are friendly, sociable, sports enthusiasts, sophisticated, educated and a nature-loving group. The Community owned recreation facilities include a picturesque 27 hole golf course (18 designed by famous architect Donald Ross), 10 hard-tru tennis courts, an outdoor Olympic sized swimming pool, and professional lawn bowling greens. An outstanding summer camp program and youth activities are available for children between the ages of 3 to 15. Hiking trails abound and mountain fed streams offer excellent fly-fishing opportunities. The Buck Hill [water] Falls and forested walking trails around them are not to be missed. On-site winter activities include ice-skating, cross-country skiing, paddle tennis, and proximity to near-by Pocono Mountain ski areas.
