Nearly three years ago, a Harborcreek Township factory almost burned to the ground.

American Biodiesel Energy Incorporated on Iroquious Avenue burst into flames in May of 2011.

The building burned for days and had been deemed structurally deficient in some portions.

Now, the owner of the building is taking action.

Leon Akerly is the owner of the building.

He says following Monday, he will have complied with getting any bent or twisted metal out of the factory.

Akerly says he may put up a new structure.

Harborcreek Township supervisors say the Akerly's have complied.

Officials say the area has been tested and cleared by the Department of Environmental Protection and there aren't any hazardous materials present.
