SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - No injuries were reported as part of a building in downtown Sullivan collapsed.

The collapse impacted area workers and residents.

News 10's Lacey Clifton was in Sullivan talking with the Sullivan Fire Chie for another story when the back of Bodine Law Office collapsed.

That is on the west side of the square.

Duke Energy and a local gas company were on the scene to shut the power off to the building.

Workers and residents in the impacted stretch of buildings were evacuated.

Sullivan City Hall officials told News 10 that city hall and the attached buildings will be closed until they can bear cleared by a private building inspector. Sullivan Mayor Clint Lamb says the inspector is expected to be on-site on Thursday.

We spoke with a resident that lives in an apartment above the Bodine Law Office.

He told us the damage to the building came as a shock.

"My cat usually sits in the window and he hopped down and took off running. That's when I looked toward the window, and instead of aluminum siding, there was brick. So I knew the siding had fallen off, I didn't quite know the extent of the damage until I went outside," Tony Williams said.

We will continue to follow this story and bring you more information as soon as it becomes available.
