WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — Part of East 2nd Street North in downtown Wichita was closed off Sunday night due to what Sedgwick County Dispatch is calling a “structurally unsound building.”
The Wichita Fire Department told KSN News a downspout was leaking, causing bricks to fall from the building and onto the sidewalk below.
Along with the sidewalk already being closed off, the WFD has also asked the street department to temporarily block off the first lane on the south side of East 2nd Street North
The Wichita Fire Department has asked for a Metropolitan Area Planning Commission (MAPC) representative to come to the scene.
The building in question is next to the overhead rail bridge.
