PASSAIC, N.J. (AP) — Thirty people were evacuated from three homes in a northern New Jersey community after a building’s foundation partially collapsed.
But no injuries have been reported.
The Record reports that Passaic firefighters found a partial collapse on Jackson Street around 12:45 a.m. Sunday. Officials say that building and the two adjacent structures were then evacuated as a precaution.
The affected residents have not been allowed back in their home because there is a potential for further collapse. It was not clear Sunday afternoon how long it would take for crews to shore up the building’s foundation.
