Broken high-rise windows close streets in downtown Fort Worth
Debris falling from a Fort Worth building has shut down a block of downtown.
Crews were called to the Frost Tower building on Thursday morning due to broken glass. Lamar Street between Fifth and Sixth streets, including sidewalks, are closed.
The Fort Worth Fire Department said on Wednesday night that large debris had fallen from the building and that the sign had come loose. The sign has been secured.
Last month, another street in downtown was close after a loose cable from window washing apparatus smashed glass windows on a building in the 200 block of Commerce Street, a fire official said.
Officials set up barriers on Fifth Street from Burnett Plaza to Taylor Street and on Lamar Street from Fourth Street to Sixth Street. Crews said they should be finished cleaning up within an hour and police are providing additional barriers.
The fire department had not received reports of damage to any other buildings.
No pedestrians or workers were injured in either incident.
