Sunday morning, the wall of the second story of The Man Shop collapsed on to the roof of Fuentes Cafe causing significant damage. 

Owners of Fuentes Cafe notified employees about the incident, and said that the restaurant could be closed for approximately a month. 

Two employees were inside the restaurant at the time, but were on on the opposite end of the restaurant from where the collapse took place. No injuries were reported. 

Throughout the day, the large hole on the side of the second floor of The Man Shop has been expanding. The fire marshal on scene says that both businesses are unsafe to enter until engineers asses the situation. The cause is not yet known.

The incident caused the southbound lanes of S. Chadbourne St between W. Beauregard and E.Twohig to be shut down. 

Fuentes Cafe will be donating food to the West Texas Boys Ranch. 

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
