Crews ready for Mystic Circle home demolition

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - Extreme Home Makeover crews are getting ready to demolish a home on Mystic Circle. The family's belongings have already been packed and put in storage and the utilities have been disconnected. Demolition is expected to take place sometime on Wednesday afternoon.

The site will be cleared and the foundation will be poured on Wednesday night.

Staff Sgt. William Dickinson of Marine Logistics Squadron 31 and his wife, India, and five children, Grant, 16; Briana, 14; James, 10; Robin, 8; Sophia, 1, were selected from hundreds of candidates.

According to a news release, the home is nearly uninhabitable due to mold in every wall, fire hazards, flood damage, shoddy electrical and an inadequate foundation.

The Dickinson family left for Disney World on Wednesday morning after spending the night in a local hotel.
