Downtown Murray building suffers partial roof collapse

BY LAUREL BLACK lblack@paducahsun.com

Another building in downtown Murray suffered structural damage Saturday morning, temporarily displacing the occupants of two adjacent buildings.

The roof of a structure at 117 South Fourth St. partially collapsed around 10 a.m. No one was injured, but the collapse means that at least for a few days, two businesses - The Cake Lady Bakery, 119 South Fourth St., and Crye-Leike Realty, 115 South Fourth St., - can't operate from those locations, City Administrator Matt Mattingly said.

The damaged building formerly housed the consignment shop Yours, Mine & Ours, but is now vacant, Mattingly added.

He said that a structural engineer, whom the property owner at the damaged building will hire, will investigate the damage and report to the city. Officials hope that the report will be available by Wednesday, allowing the city to make a determination as to the safety of the adjacent buildings.

"We're hopeful ... the city can determine the result for those occupants and get the businesses back and operating again sometime next week," he said.

The collapse did not block traffic, but the surrounding sidewalks and parking lot have been fenced off.

The partial roof collapse comes on the heels of a Feb. 22 building collapse that occurred nearby, on the 300 block of Main Street. The collapse forced traffic to be rerouted and cut power to nearby businesses. Demolition at 312, 314 and 316 Main St. continues, and Main and Fourth Streets are shut down until it's completed, Mattingly said.
