Work crews began demolishing parts of the Oak Creek Apartments near 22nd Street and West Loop 289 on Monday.
The apartment complex suffered from what police believe to be an intentionally set fire in September.
Police say that 19-year-old George Bippus started the fire. He remains in jail and has been charged with arson.
A private company was hired by the apartment owners to tear down the unit affected by the fire.
The owners have not said whether they plan to rebuild.
