Recent rain blamed for building collapse in East Petersburg

Two adults are displaced after a building collapse in East Petersburg on Tuesday.

It happened in the 500 block of Vaughn Road in Lancaster County.

According to Boro Zoning Officer Ed Fisher, the wet ground from recent rains caused a wall to buckle.

The Red Cross is assisting the two people displaced.

Officials say the building can be repaired, but it can not be lived in until repairs are made.
