UPDATE: McDowell families displaced after apartment building crumbles

Posted:
MCDOWELL (WVVA) – Multiple families were left homeless after their McDowell County apartment building began crumbling late Monday night.

Dispatchers say the residents of the building on Route 52 in Northfork were evacuated around 10 p.m. after bricks began falling.

The building has been condemned and residents are not being allowed back in due to the unstable nature.

No injures were reported.

It is unclear at this time, how many families are affected or what led to the partial collapse. Officials are working to provide living assistance for those families.

Northfork and Welch Fire Departments responded to the scene.
