Partial building collapse on South Main Street


An abandoned building near downtown Rockford partially collapsed.

This happened just before 7am Monday in the 800 block of S. Main Street.  Firefighters say pieces of the roof started to fall.  No one was hurt.  The city demolished the front of the building to prevent other pieces from falling into the street.

There are plans to tear down the remainder of the building in the future.  However, no date has been set.
