ST. HELENS, OR (KPTV) -

A vacant building in St. Helens is unsafe.

Several bricks fell off the Muckle Building Monday afternoon. City leaders have since closed down an adjacent sidewalk, put up a barricade and cut power to the building.

Some people living in nearby apartments have also been evacuated as a precaution.

An engineer looked at the building Tuesday to further assess the damage and discuss an action plan.
