CLEVELAND -- The scene of the worst arson fire in Cleveland's history has been demolished and an empty lot is all that remains.

The home involved in the arson that killed eight children and a woman in 2005 was torn down Tuesday.

Antun Lewis was found guilty of arson last year after a judge overturned an earlier conviction. He will be sentenced in March.

The May 21, 2005, fire killed Medeia Carter, 33, four of her children and four other children attending a 14th birthday sleepover on East 87th Street.

Gasoline had been poured inside the home and ignited.
