Huge Building Collapses In Neighborhood

A three story building bit the dust in downtown Mt. Sterling Tuesday. The old furniture warehouse on North Queen St. collapsed around 7:00 p.m.

Part of the building fell onto a home next door. A young boy inside the home had to be taken to the hospital for a minor injury.

The man who lives in the home told 27NEWSFIRST he knew the abandoned building was a hazard and had warned the city it was only a matter of time before it was going to come down.

The city's mayor said it is now the responsibility of the building's owner to clean up the mess.
