Huntington County town to evaluate buildings’ stability

WARREN – A northeastern Indiana community is evaluating the sturdiness of its downtown buildings after the weekend collapse of one structure moments after a parade ended.

Warren Clerk-Treasurer Marilyn Morrison says the town council on Monday hired an engineer to evaluate the exteriors of all downtown buildings.

A building more than 100 years old collapsed Friday night, slightly injuring two people. That building and another next to it already have been torn down.

Moore tells WANE-TV and WPTA-TV that the Huntington County town has decided to tear down a third building adjacent to the one that collapsed because it would cost too much to stabilize it.

Warren is about 30 miles southwest of Fort Wayne.
