Sinkhole causes partial building collapse in Chambersburg

Posted: Updated:
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A sinkhole opened up and caused the partial collapse of a building in Chambersburg Wednesday morning.

The sinkhole was called in just before 9 a.m. at the old Tower Bank building at 2001 Lincoln Way East in Guilford Township. The building was vacant and no one was injured.

Township Road Superintendent Frank Hobbs said the sinkhole occurred on private property but is within 75 feet of Lincoln Way East, also known as Route 30, which is maintained by the state. PennDOT was called in to evaluate the situation.

Hobbs said the situation has now been handed over to Susquehanna Bank, which currently owns the building. He said the gas and electricity in the building have been shut off.
