October 29, 2012 2:58 pm

A building located at 92 8th Ave. in Manhattan has suffered a collapsed front facade and falling debris in advance of the landfall of Hurricane Sandy, a New York Fire Department spokesperson confirmed in a phone interview with TPM.

FDNY had no reported injuries at the time of the interview with TPM and 25 units were on the scene clearing debris and checking to see if anyone was hurt.

The building, which appears to be a “Muscle Maker Grill” chain restaurant location, collapsed at about 6:30 p.m. local time, the FDNY spokesperson told TPM.
