NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Three city agencies responded Friday to the collapse of a house on Delachaise Street.
Police, fire and code enforcement were on the scene in the 3500 block of Delachaise after the collapse was reported just after noon.
Neighbors said the structure had been abandoned since Katrina, and an 18-wheeler that rolled down the street a couple of days ago caused the roof to partially cave in. Just before the collapse, neighbors said children were playing nearby and had to be pulled away quickly when it was apparent the structure was going to come down.
No one was injured.
It was the second house to collapse on the street i this week. A home under renovation in the 2400 block collapsed Tuesday night, damaging an adjacent home. No one was injured in that incident.
