After the collapse, firefighters evacuated residents. They were not allowed to return until a structural engineer and city officials inspect the building and found it safe.

There were no injuries in the collapse.

According to Lakewood Mayor Meghan George, criminal complaints have been filed in Lakewood City Court against Marine Towers, Burton Carol Management and Atlas Masonry for not being licensed.

The charges in the complaints say that they “erected, constructed, enlarged, modified, repaired, moved or demolished a building or other structure, or installed any equipment or other accessory, the installation of which is regulated by the building code of the State of Ohio or other ordinances of the City or to cause the same to be the same, without first having applied to the Commissioner of Construction or obtained a permit.

It is a fourth degree offense.

All the cars were taken out of the garage and the building commissioner issued a “do not occupy” order for the structure.

The mayor said the management company is working with to consolidate the property while the investigation continues.
