HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

An abandoned building on Babcock Street in Hartford has been torn down.

An Eyewitness News exclusive may have prompted the action taken on the building.

The three-story home was vacant for years, attracting drug dealers and squatters.

It was also set on fire back in September.

The property was owned by PNC Bank, and after a Channel 3 story aired last year, city building inspectors filed for a permit to demolish the building.
