Technical rescue crews with the Olathe Fire Department were working Friday to repair a partial wall collapse on a building near an industrial area.

The parapet, a protective wall along the edge of a roof, collapsed about 5 p.m. in front of a building in the 15600 block of U.S. 169, according to a tweet from Olathe Fire Chief Jeff DeGraffenreid‏.

The area is near several industrial business parks, including the Bell Tower Business Center and the Midwest Industrial Park.

A structural engineer was helping rescue crews repair the wall, DeGraffenreid said.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
