INDIANAPOLIS — A man was rescued Monday evening from a collapsed building in downtown Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Fire Department was called to an old brick building at the corner of 9th and Illinois Streets at around 5:30 p.m.

Two men told firefighters they were working on the building, which is being rehabilitated, when they heard a loud crack. 

Moments later, part of the building collapsed.

One of the men made it out of the building on his own; the other was rescued from the second floor of the building.

A firefighter was injured at the scene and was taken to a nearby hospital, according to RTV6. His injuries are said to be minor.
