A former laundromat in the heart of downtown Swanton has started to collapse. Sidewalks and parking spots are being blocked off on the west side of Main Street. The village administrator says that they don't know the condition of the building and therefore they're taking safety precautions.
The village administrator says the building is empty. The reason for the collapse is a wall between two structures in the back fell.
The village administrator says the part of a wall collapsed Sunday May 4. He says they called the building owner Monday and has not heard back. The village of Swanton does not have a building department to inspect buildings so they called the State of Ohio to send an inspector from Columbus.
A resident who formerly worked in construction says the building is dangerous.
"All these bricks are falling in. The floor is falling in. It is going to force the side walls out, and the front is eventually going to fall over," said Charles Blayz, Swanton resident.
Another business owner says he heard the building next door to him collapse last week.
"We heard a loud noise and then the building shook a few seconds after that. We went outside to look and see what it was and we didn't see anything. It felt like someone hit the building," said Edward Taft, Computer Plus owner.
The Village of Swanton has asked businesses to relocate.
