With a creaking sound and a low groan two 100-foot-tall smokestacks fell to the ground today in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

The Essroc cement company hasn't used the stacks for years, since it shut down the kilns at the facility.

The company says it plans to dismantle the rest of the building, turning as much as possible into scrap metal.
