A project which acquires and demolishes repetitively flooded houses has brought down two Ponca City homes  this week.

The FEMA project is a 75/25 project with the City of Ponca City, with FEMA paying 75 percent and Ponca City paying 25 percent of the demolition costs.

On Wednesday morning, the demolition crew took down a house at 2424 Kingston Road. Earlier in the week, 720  North Fifth Street was demolished.

Both houses were acquired by the city. Before they were demolished, the houses were used for training by the Ponca City Fire Department. Once both lots are completely cleaned up, the lots will be sodded.
