Bricks Fall from Larson Square Building in Sioux Falls; No One Hurt

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — No injuries were reported when bricks fell from the side of a three-story building in Sioux Falls.

Bricks began falling to the sidewalk at the Larson Square building about 10 p.m. Tuesday. The incident prompted the closure of a section of Main Avenue, and firefighters were called to the scene to peel loose bricks from the wall.

The building houses apartments and a restaurant. Fire Department Capt. Troy Scandin says the structural integrity of the building is fine.

The bricks fell from a veneer wall. Authorities believe rotting wood behind the bricks might have caused the bricks in a 250-square-foot section to fall.
