A vacant building on downtown Kingman’s Main Street collapsed Thursday afternoon, City Manager Emily Graf said.
The south wall and a portion of the west wall of the building collapsed at 2:38 p.m. Thursday. Kingman fire, EMS, police and public works units “all responded quickly and efficiently,” Graf said.
No injuries were reported.
Officials have not determined the cause of the collapse; Graf said an engineer would examine the building.
Never miss a local story.
“The main concern for the city of Kingman is the safety of its residents,” Graf said. “We are in that discovering mode, determining what our next steps are.”
An employee at the grain elevator on Main Street reported seeing orange ropes in front of the building in recent days, though Graf said a rumor that the building was condemned by the city is false.
“The city had not condemned that building,” Graf said.
