A demolition accident at Forest City's other local controversial mega project temporarily halts blasting:

A construction company was expected to regain its permit and resume blasting as early as today after it was pulled by the Yonkers Fire Department in the wake of a blasting accident.

"They are going to do things a little differently," said Yonkers Assistant Fire Chief John Flynn.

A worker was injured and several cars were damaged in the accident at the site of the Ridge Hill development.
