Investigation Underway After Newark Building Partially Collapses

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) -- An investigation is underway into what led a Newark building to partially collapse Tuesday.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. at a vacant home on 15th Avenue near 16th Street.

A wall caved in and debris littered the street, even falling on a resident's car next door.

Neighbor Icilda Cooper says the building has been a problem for a while.

"This building keep coming down on me, and I cannot get this apartment down here rented," she said. "I want the city to come and move it. I need to rent my apartment. I'm paying taxes. I'm paying mortgage."

No injuries were reported.
