SOMERSET, MASS. (WHDH) - A large part of the Brayton Point Station in Somerset was demolished Sunday, sending a cloud of debris over the site.

Demolition began earlier this year when the pant’s two cooling towers were taken down in April.

The plant, the largest coal-fired power station in New England, opened its doors in 1963 and closed in 2017.
