    The implosion created a huge plume of dust that billowed to the surrounding businesses nearby, offering an eery ground fog against a bright blue September sky.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (myFOXDetroit.com) -

The Ramada Inn on 9 Mile near Greenfield has changed names and owners several times over the years. Now the building is being knocked down.

Fox 2's Robin Murdoch talks to a former employee, Glinda Fragale, who worked at the hotel back when it was the Shiawasee Hotel. Fragale was also proposed to in the building.

Also, Fox 2's Murray Feldman shares some memories about the hotel that stood across the street from the Fox 2 station.

Watch Fox 2's Robin Murdoch's video report in the video player above.

The two million dollar demolition project began on Wednesday earlier this week. There's still no word on what the prime real estate spot will house next.

    The city of Detroit says workers and retirees have approved pension cuts, a crucial step to emerging from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. The city reported results Monday after two months of balloting ended July 11. A judge still must hold a trial to determine if Detroit's overall bankruptcy plan is fair and feasible, but support from retirees is vital.
