Need bricks? Fernwood School has plenty

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

There's a large load of bricks left behind from the demolition of the old Fernwood School property at the corner or Pass and DeBuys roads.

Rock and Roll Demolition of Florida is donating most of the bricks to keep them from ending up in a landfill.

The owner said former teachers, students and school donors have been picking up bricks for souvenirs. Some people have taken some home for construction projects.

About 80 percent of the bricks, along with metal, concrete, and asphalt salvaged from the site are all being recycled. The demolition and clean-up project should wrap up next Wednesday.
