Wind causes Evansville home to collapse


EVANSVILLE (WEHT) – A gust of wind is being blamed for a home collapsing in Evansville. It happened around Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in the 300 block of Edgar Street.

The Vanderburgh County Building Commissioner says the owner of the house, who is also a licensed contractor, was making repairs to the home when it collapsed.

The commissioner said the owner had all the proper permits and did not appear to be doing anything wrong — so no citations or fines will be issued.

No one was injured in the collapse.
