Mystery surrounds Detroit demolition work

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Work to bring down abandoned, burned out homes and clear other lots has begun but no one knows who is behind the project.

A six block section between St. Aubin and Chene Streets south of Mack Avenue are being cleaned up.  However, the head of the project can't comment because he signed a "confidentiality agreement" before the work began.

Officials with the City of Detroit are not taking credit although they confirmed a project was scheduled for that area.  Mayor Dave Bing had promised to raze ten-thousand abandoned homes by the end of this year and so far 6,300 have been demolished.

Residents still living in the area are just happy their neighborhood is being cleaned up.
