Six people were killed and 14 injured an after a Salvation Army thrift store building collapsed in central Philadelphia yesterday. A neighboring building was in the process of being demolished, when one of its walls suddenly gave way, sending bricks, wood, concrete, and cinder blocks onto the Salvation Army store.
