SOUTH PORTLAND — The remains of Red’s Dairy Freeze on Cottage Road will be demolished on Monday morning around 8:30 a.m. to make way for a new structure.

The building suffered serious damage in a May 16 electrical fire.

The best-case scenario is Red’s re-opening for two to three weeks this year, once construction is complete, said John Harvey, who represents Red’s owner Chris Bolling in his insurance claim. Most likely, he said, it will be open for next season.

The new building will be much the same but with American Disabilities Act-compliant bathrooms.
