Section of historic house collapses in Brazil

Rio de Janeiro –  A section of a historic house in downtown Rio de Janeiro collapsed Tuesday for unknown reasons, but no one was injured because the structure was empty, Brazilian emergency services officials said.

The roof and part of the walls on the second floor of the two-story residence collapsed around 8:00 a.m., when no pedestrians were passing by.

The incident brought back memories of the collapse of three buildings in downtown Rio de Janeiro in January that killed 17 people and injured five others.

The house affected by Tuesday's collapse is in the Bohemian Lapa neighborhood, just a few meters from the Rio de Janeiro Cathedral and the headquarters of oil company Petrobras.

The building belongs to Cordao de Bola Preta, Rio de Janeiro's oldest and most traditional Carnival group.

The Carnival group moved out of the house a few weeks ago because the building was scheduled to undergo renovations due to its poor condition.

The building's collapse forced police to close off two streets in downtown Rio de Janeiro because rubble had fallen in the thoroughfares.

Collapse of building in Rio de Janeiro has four crashes in five monthse

The second floor of an old house in downtown Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday collapsed without casualties, in an accident that recalls the collapse of three buildings in January and the vulnerable infrastructure of this city, the venue for many events in the coming years .

The building, two floors and over 100 years old, was located in the tourist district of Lapa and historical heritage was in town. The incident occurred around 08:20 local (11:20 GMT) and witnesses said they heard a loud noise with the collapse and a cloud of dust covered the area.
 
Firefighters reported that there is no record of casualties and that two people had minor injuries, according to media reports.
 
The building was owned by "Cordao Bola Preta", the giant carnival bloco met this year to more than two million people in its traditional street party in downtown Rio
 
"That building that fell was not used for reclamation works would. It was never used for any activity Bola Preta. At some point served as a deposit, but about eight months for that served here or more," said the bloco television president, Pedro Ernesto Marinho.
 
The city government planned to invest $ 1.2 million to reform the house, but the work is not executed by a court fight among members of the bloco and former owners of the property.
 
The incident occurred about a mile from where three other buildings, twenty, ten and four floors collapsed the night of January 26 almost simultaneously by a structural problem. In that accident, 22 people died.

100 Rio Buildings Risk Collapse, Official Says

More than 100 abandoned buildings in Rio de Janeiro are in such poor condition they are at risk of collapsing, the head of a regional engineering agency said Wednesday, a day after part of a two-story building crumbled in the Olympic city's colonial downtown.

No one was injured in Tuesday's incident, but it was a chilling reminder of the January collapse of three other downtown buildings, which left 17 people dead and five missing and raised questions about Rio's readiness to host the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.

Agostinho Guerreiro, president of Crea, a public entity representing members of the engineering profession, urged authorities here to act before other buildings tumble down.

"These buildings aren't necessarily going to fall down next week or next month — I don't want to cause public panic — but these 100 or so buildings are definitely in bad enough shape that action is required," Guerreiro told The Associated Press. "We need a public planning strategy that takes these buildings into account and takes concrete steps to preserve them."

About half the at-risk buildings are rambling bourgeois homes from the turn of the 20th century or even earlier, while about 20 were built as recently as the 1980s and abandoned because of money, legal or other problems, he said.

He said that like the buildings in the Tuesday and January incidents, most of the at-risk structures are concentrated in the historic downtown, where gutted, once-grand bourgeois homes are wedged between modern towers.

Other areas of concern are the neighborhood around the legendary Maracana soccer stadium, where the World Cup final is to be held, and the popular nightlife hotspot Lapa, he said. But he added that vast renovation projects under way in and around Maracana should make any risk negligible for the soccer tournament, while bar and nightclub owners' renovation of many old buildings in Lapa had substantially reduced the risk in that area.

Guerreiro said his statistics were based on an exhaustive 2003 study, updated with the findings of the agency's inspectors as they visit building sites to certify the presence a qualified engineer. Crea does not have the right to order its own building inspections, he said.

After the January tragedy, some critics lashed out at what they called a lack of oversight by local authorities, saying it creates a culture of impunity that leads to accidents.

Guerreiro pointed to the private sector, which is largely behind the renaissance in Lapa, as a possible solution to the dangerously dilapidated buildings.

"Happily, the technology is at a point where most of these buildings could be fully recuperated, especially if there's an entrepreneur who'd continue to invest in their maintenance," he said.
