New Orleans crews demolished a large portion of the Hard Rock Hotel building as part of a controlled operation on Thursday.

The portion was a part of the Burgundy Street side of the hotel, according to WWL. The entire 18-story structure is in the process of being completely demolished.

The Hard Rock Hotel partially collapsed on Oct. 12, 2019, killing three workers and injuring more than a dozen people.
