Part of a building’s facade collapsed in downtown Aurora Wednesday night.
Aurora Police Sgt. Edgar Gallardo said a portion of eastbound Galena Boulevard was closed around 7:45 p.m. due to the facade collapse at a building on the corner of Galena and Broadway.
“We anticipate being closed down for quite a bit of time due to the precarious nature of the buildings that may still potentially come down,” Gallardo said in a Facebook live video on the department’s page Wednesday evening.
Bricks can be seen scattered throughout the street and front sidewalk in the video.
