At least three top floors of the block of flats on Mukačevská Street in Prešov will have to be torn down. The building, damaged by a gas explosion on December 6, will be checked by construction experts, who will determine how to proceed with the demolition.

It remains unclear when and to what extent the building will be demolished, the Korzár regional daily reported.

The statics experts recommend demolishing the top four floors, adding they could be dangerous since the panels may gradually fall down. The owners of the flats agreed at a meeting on December 8 that the building should be demolished, Korzár wrote.
