KILLIN, TX (KWTX) – Three days after the brick wall collapsed, families living in ten apartments in Killeen are at the shelter awaiting more information.
Arriving Thursday evening at 512 W. Green Ave., crews found a brick wall that had detached from the main structure and collapsed.
Fire brigades secured the site of the collapse and surrounding areas.
City officials were called to determine if the structure was safe for residents.
The results indicate that the building is unsafe and uninhabitable.
It was determined that the owner would need the advice of a civil engineer to have the building deemed safe for residents.
The city’s director of homeland security and emergency management has worked with the property manager, property owner, citizens and community partners to help displaced residents with meals and extended stays at their current emergency shelter, according to the City of Killeen.
