HARBOR BEACH, MI -- Some of the last remnants of a former DTE Energy coal-fired electric generation plant in Huron County collapsed after a company used explosives to dismantle the building's structure.
Two smokestacks, a part of the Harbor Beach facility, located on Lake Huron, came tumbling down on Tuesday, June 9.
Ron Wruble, city director for the city of Harbor Beach, said a company is in the process of cleaning up the site and decommissioning the plant. The plant has been closed for about a decade, he said.
