FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI) -- An historic Frankfort building is prepping for repairs after its bricks came tumbling to the ground.
It closed Pro-Byte Computer for a day and left West Clinton street from Columbia to Main closed for a couple of days.
We previously reported on this back in Dec. 2019.
The owner of Pro-Byte, Charlie Spradlin, said customers were almost hit by the tumbling bricks.
He also said business is still good at the Frankfort computer repair shop.
"Talk of the town," said Spradlin. "Nobody has mentioned it since then but yeah they were all wondering what was happening."
Bricks tumbled off the roof of the 108-year-old building almost three months ago.
"I had a customer just walk in the store that day," said Spradlin.
Spradlin breaks down what happened that day.
"I had just stepped back into the back here and heard a loud crash, sounded like a car accident, and walked out to see it and a customer come in and bricks fell on his car actually and on the sidewalk," said Spradlin.
On Dec. 12th 2019 about three rows of bricks came crashing down.
"It was a little startling," said Spradlin.
At the time city officials said rain and cold weather might have been the cause.
"We had to shut down for one day but it did not affect the business too much," said Spradlin.
The business owner called the building owners and they showed up immediately to assess the damage.
"As far as I know it, in the next few weeks they are going to be replacing the bricks on the building," said Spradlin.
The owners of the historic building could not be reached for comment.
Back in December they weren't sure who would pay for the $15,000 in damages.
At the time they told News 18 they'd fill out grants to cover the cost.
