FOX 24 via CNN -- A hotel is demolished in Albany, New York, with a colorful fireworks show.

According to CBS6, it took a matter or seconds for the building to be reduced to rubble. It's the first building to be imploded in the city's over 400 year history and everything went as planned.

The building had fallen into disrepair in recent years and was demolished to make room for a civic center.
