LOS ANGELES (AP) — Termites are being blamed for the floor collapse of an upstairs Los Angeles apartment and led authorities to order six residents out of the 104-year-old building.

There are no injuries.

City News Service says firefighters were called to the Lincoln Heights building on Sunday afternoon when one of the floors in an apartment above a business began giving way.

KTTV-TV says the building has been red-tagged, meaning it’s unsafe to enter.

Three men, three women and three dogs are displaced. The Red Cross helped them find shelter.

Building and safety inspectors are expected to condemn the building.
