“You have a building that collapsed, an apartment building,” a male caller to 9-1-1 told an emergency operator.

He said he was not sure the building was occupied.

“There are bricks all out on the road and it looks like it might collapse again,” the man told the operator.

According to Internet research, the Salem Avenue Apartments building was built in 1927.
