PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Authorities were forced to close a road in the Hill District Saturday due to a crumbling building.

Officials had to shut down the stretch of road between Centre Avenue and Kirkpatrick Street as a precaution.

The side of the building is beginning to deteriorate, and some of the bricks have fallen onto the sidewalk.

Officials say it’s a vacant building.
