HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Rain and age likely played a role in partial building collapse in downtown Huntington early Tuesday morning.

Brother’s Auto owns the building in the 300 block of 5th Street

The owner tells WSAZ.com the collapse happened about 4 a.m.

The building was being used for storage, but there had been plans to remodel.

One lane of 5th street is closed for drivers coming off the bridge.

The owner says building will probably now be torn down.
