Partial building collapse in Paducah

Posted: Updated:

PADUCAH, KY— Part of a downtown building collapsed early Sunday morning. 


The owners of the building located at 133 South 3rd Street have secured a contractor to stabilize the building, according to Pam Spencer, public information officer for the City of Paducah.  


The contractor will be on site Sunday to begin the work, Spencer said. 


 At approximately 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, a portion of the front of the building fell into the roadway.  No one was injured. 


Until further notice, all lanes of South 3rd Street (Interstate 24 Business Loop) and Kentucky Avenue (U.S. 45 Business) are closed at that intersection. 


 All efforts are being made to save the building, Spencer said.  


Over the past several weeks, the building owners have been renovating the structure.
