Broken high-rise windows close streets in downtown Fort Worth
A downtown street will be closed for several hours Tuesday after a loose cable from window washing apparatus smashed glass windows on a building, a fire official said.
No workers were on the scaffolding when the accident occurred shortly after 6 a.m., authorities said.
Firefighters responded to the 200 block of Commerce St. and discovered broken glass on the street.
A cable broke out windows on the 17th floor of the Wells Fargo Tower, according to a police report.
No pedestrians or workers were injured.
Commerce Street between 2nd and Weatherford streets will be closed for several hours Tuesday as workers repair the windows, a fire official said.
Last week, a pedestrian was critically injured and two workers suffered minor injuries when a construction scaffolding collapsed in downtown Fort Worth.
Officials with OSHA are investigating the incident.
