DUNKIRK – The clean-up continues Thursday in Dunkirk after the collapse of a downtown building Wednesday afternoon.
Witnesses say a portion of the Coburn Block Building at 123 Central Ave. collapsed around 1 p.m. Wednesday. As a result of the collapse, portions of the brick building spilled out into the street, with some bricks ending up as the other side. No injuries were reported but the street was closed by Dunkirk Public Safety officials as they worked to make sure rest of the building was secure.
An investigation continues as to what may have caused the collapse of the building, which is believed to have been built in the early 1900s.
