City building inspectors were out investigating why a building collapsed Thursday March 30.

City officials said a portion of the original Juvenile and Domestic Courts building collapsed while it was under construction. They said they are concerned the back wall may fall also due to possible bad weather this weekend.

Contractors are going to build a barricade around the building to catch any debris if it falls. As of now, the area is closed to the public.
