GRAND FORKS -- The former Alchem ethanol plant in Grafton, N.D., is being dismantled, piece by piece, more than five years after it closed and about a year after a plan briefly surfaced about its possible reopening.

"They're scrapping the building out," Grafton City Administrator Nick Ziegelmann said Wednesday.

He said crews have been removing equipment from the complex for several weeks and parts of the building already have been dismantled.
