Nine People Homeless After Building Collapsed

KALIHI (KHNL) - Nine people are homeless after their Kalihi apartment building collapsed Wednesday morning.

A woman and her two-year-old grandson were in her second story apartment when the staircase and lanai collapsed.

Firefighters used a ladder to rescue them.  Two dogs and a cat were also rescued.

A building inspector says the landlord must make major improvement.  Families in six remaining units will have to move out during the renovation.
