The old Hartz Grocery store building collapsed Tuesday afternoon and was forced to be demolished.

The original roof collapsed and pushed out a portion of the north wall.

Bricks from the exterior wall were lying approximately 25 feet away from the building, and pieces were still falling down for several minutes after authorities arrived. Officials determined that the building's condition was a threat to public safety so it had to be demolished. Fortunately no one was injured.
