An apartment building evacuated yesterday over fears of imminent collapse in Holon has now collapsed, say Fire and Rescue Services.

First responders were called to the scene yesterday after residents of the building reported hearing the sound of a blast. Images showed cracks on the walls of the building and police said residents were unable to open the front doors of their apartments.

The decision to evacuate the building was made in coordination with professional engineers, according to a police statement.

Police say the building, on Serlin Street in Holon, collapsed this afternoon.
