What's left of the Waukegan strip mall that exploded last week is being torn down. Demolition equipment began the tear-down process Monday afternoon.

Waukegan fire officials have confirmed that a natural gas explosion occurred, but they continue to investigate what caused the gas to ignite.

Nine people were injured in the blast. One person remains hospitalized in fair condition.
