KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Crews are demolishing a northeast Kansas City church that partially collapsed with children inside.

The Kansas City Star ( reports that demolition began Thursday on the Rios De Agua Viva Church. Work continued through Saturday.

Walls at the church collapsed Aug. 7 with more than 60 people inside, including children attending a vacation Bible school. No one was injured.

The city determined the rest of the three-story building must be demolished because structural engineers found that it was unsafe.

The building was insured and the church said previously that it was planning to move to Kansas City, Kansas.
