SAN ANTONIO – Rain on Friday night is the chief suspect in a building collapse just east of downtown.

Nobody was inside the building near the intersection of East Commerce and Hackberry streets.

Batallion Chief Wesley West, with the San Antonio Fire Department, said the building has previously been reported to code compliance because it was leaning and in danger of collapsing.
