Two separate collapses last Monday have left a gaping hole in the west wall of a building located at 301 Mitchell Street in Ackley. Sitting on the corner of Main and Mitchell and east of GNB Bank, the building is owned by Cline and Cline Enterprises.

Both collapses were caught on the banks’ surveillance camera. The first came at 4:17 a.m., taking down a stucco overlay and a layer of bricks behind it. The second collapse came at 4:12 p.m. when the two interior layers of bricks fell.
