WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Part of the front wall of Struxture Architects collapsed onto East 4th Street in downtown Waterloo Wednesday night.  The business is located next door to Jameson's Public House.

The bricks fell around 7:30 p.m., luckily no one appeared hurt.

One person from Struxture Architects attributes the collapse to the heavy rain, and also says it is an older building.  The watch commander at the Waterloo Police Department says the sidewalk will likely be closed for the rest of the evening.
