A building in Columbus, Ohio, partially collapsed Monday afternoon while a firefighter was inside during an inspection.
No injuries were reported in the collapse, including to the firefighter. A business that operated on the ground floor, at 1032 East Long Street, was closed Monday. The owner of the business lived in a different part of the building, but was not inside when it happened, fire officials said. Photos and video showed the collapse started along the back wall before a corner of the structure gave way.
Columbus fire and police had multiple units on the scene during and after the collapse.
Chief Jeffrey Geitter of the Columbus Division of Fire said a building inspector was checking another building nearby when he noticed a section of the back wall had given way and called firefighters.
