ST. LOUIS — A building has collapsed near I-70 and the Stan Musial Veteran’s Memorial Bridge in north St. Louis. The St. Louis Fire Department is deploying a drone in the 900 block of Tyler to investigate the collapse. This scene is still under investigation.

Debris from the building has spilled out onto 10th Street. The building is abandoned. No one was in the building at the time of collapse, and no injuries were reported.

There are some safety concerns about derelict buildings in St. Louis. A firefighter died last year while trying to put out a fire at an abandoned building.

Captain Garon Mosby with the St. Louis City Fire Department says the rest of the building is unstable and that a further collapse is imminent. He terms Thursday’s incident as a “pancake collapse,” in which the building started collapsing from the top.

Because of the unstable nature of the building and the likelihood of further collapse, authorities have closed the Madison St. exit off of westbound I-70 and eastbound I-44, so cars won’t drive through the area near the building.

“There’s no doubt in my mind. I mean the building might have been ready to go, and the wind likely played a contributing factor to it, you know, something weakening, and that being the final domino if you will to make it come down,” said Mosby.

Gusty winds likely led to the collpase, but the cause of it remains under investigation. Officials are working to come up with a plan of action on what to do with the rest of the building.
