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.
