Development venture in West Edmonton collapses

EDMONTON –

No one was injured in the collapse of a building under construction in West Edmonton, authorities say.

The fire department was called just before 6 a.m. by a neighboring store, which reported that a building on 128 Avenue and 184 Street appeared to have collapsed overnight.

“It appears that the steel girders and the rack fell onto the equipment at the site. About 1/3 of the building had collapsed, ”an Edmonton Fire Rescue Service spokesman told CTV News Edmonton.

There was not yet a word about what brought the 160,000 square meter project to collapse.

The scene was taped off.
