A wall collapsed yesterday at a home renovation jobsite on the corner of Crescent Avenue and Moultrie in South Bernal. Fortunately, Bay City News reports no one was injured:
The collapse was reported at 501 Crescent Ave. just after 10 a.m., according to a fire department spokesman.
The two-story residential building is currently under construction. No injuries have been reported, fire officials said.
The city’s Department of Building Inspection has been called to the scene.
A June 2016 Google streetview of the site shows what the project looked like before the accident. Neighbor T. adds that the property has been — and remains — a magnet for drama:
The house at Crescent and Moultrie that collapsed Tuesday morning has been undergoing the most recent of MANY unfortunate renovations. The crew that was working on it today scattered/disappeared just as it was collapsing. Then, after hours of police investigating and photographs/red tagging it, they came back after dark and were demolishing more. At 7:30 pm there were 2 police cars on the scene with three guys face-down on the street, I imagine arrested for trespassing a red tag.
