Another implosion will be scheduled at a later date.

The mayor's office in Pontiac, where the Silverdome is located, said it had been informed by the company responsible for the demolition that only the kicker charges detonated, meaning the implosion did not take place. The blasts were meant to break the beams and cause the colossal ring to come crashing down, WDIV reported. At 8:30 a.m., the first charge went off.

A city spokesperson told FOX 2 that "what they were told to happen, did not happen". Crews said the building could fall in on its own today. "You know, they tried to bring it down - that hard old lady-it's not coming down just yet", he said. The blasts were supposed to break the beams and cause the ring to come down.
