According to Doug Preston, Chief of Clarion Fire & Hose Co. 1, at the scene, personnel found that a section of a ceiling inside an apartment had fallen.

“It wasn’t really a collapse. It was just a small chunk of a drywall ceiling that fell,” Preston told exploreClarion.com.

Firefighters still took the time to check the roof of the building, but Preston said it appeared to be fine.

Preston also noted no one was injured when the chunk of ceiling fell.
