A residential building in Holon collapsed on Sunday morning, a day after the Fire and Rescue Services evacuated 16 families out of concern it was unsafe.

The evacuation was carried out after reports there had been an explosion in the building on Serlin Street. When firefighters and rescue workers arrived at the scene, they observed cracks in the building.

Some residents who tried to leave their homes said they could not open doors because the building’s infrastructure had shifted, police reported.

Firefighters and rescue workers evacuated the residents. After an inspection by municipal engineers, the residents were instructed not to return to their homes. The street adjacent to the building was also closed off by police.
