GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - A section of a wall at the Glens Falls Civic Center has collapsed, forcing officials to move four nights of high school basketball playoffs to other locations.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (https://bit.ly/18PNOLs ) that part of the wall collapsed Tuesday, and a street and parking lot near the 36-year-old arena are closed to traffic Wednesday.

No injuries were reported.

No other information has been released. A message left with the arena’s general manager wasn’t returned.

The Section II high school basketball games that were scheduled for Wednesday through Saturday have been moved.

The city of Glens Falls, 45 miles north of Albany, approved the sale of the 4,800-seat arena to a local business coalition late last year.

The civic center is the home of the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League.
