LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been found dead after a building partially collapsed in Louisville.

News media reports say the front of a building in the city’s Parkland neighborhood collapsed Friday.

Capt. Salvador Melendez of the Louisville Fire Department says the body of a man believed to be in his 70s was found in the rubble, which spilled into the street.

Media reports say there was a secondary collapse, but it occurred away from firefighters. Melendez says the fire department has submitted an emergency request to the city for demolition of the building.

Authorities are investigating.
