An energy building was imploded this morning in Wisconsin.

Workers imploded the Nelson Dewey Generating Station building and stack in Cassville.

The plant closed in recent years, affecting more than 40 workers. Some of those employees transferred to other facilities.

Demolition of the coal-powered plant started earlier this year.

The structure, which operated from 1959 to 2015 by Alliant Energy Subsidiary Wisconsin power and light, had become aged and considered difficult to reconfigure for other uses.

The property where the plant stood will be sold.
