(KMOV)-- The Admiral is leaving the riverfront and heading to the scrap heap.

The Admiral is traveling 14 miles from the St. Louis harbor to a facility near Columbia, Illinois.

After she was closed as a casino, all the contents were auctioned off. But no one paid the $1.5 million asking price for the Admiral with everything included.

This past January while workers were dismantling the boat they sparked a grease fire. Heavy, thick black smoke rose from the boat and filled the sky over the riverfront.
