200 Evacuated After London Building Collapse

Fire crews responded Monday afternoon after most of the six-story building collapsed.

London Fire Brigade crews were called to a collapsed building in Aldwych Monday afternoon. The six-story building was undergoing a renovation and part of the building's structure, as well as the scaffolding surrounding it, collapsed, according to the brigade's news release.

It said about 100 people were evacuated from the building site and 100 other people were evacuated from neighboring properties as a precaution.

LFB Station Manager John Snelgrove, who was at the scene said when the first crews arrived, "they found the building, which was under refurbishment, had collapsed between the fifth and second floors. Firefighters gave first aid to an injured man on site until ambulance crews arrived and also helped police put safety cordons in place and to evacuate people from the immediate area."

Two fire engines, three fire rescue unit, and about 30 firefighters and officers responded to the site. The cause of the collapse is under investigation.
