Tenants forced out, businesses closed due to structural issues in Scranton

Inspectors were called to a building in Scranton Tuesday morning for a sewage leak when they found other problems.

SCRANTON, Pa. — Three downtown businesses are closed, and three apartments were evacuated in Scranton after building inspectors found structural and safety issues.

The building is along North Washington Avenue. 

It houses a Subway, Coal City Smoke Company, and Electric City Pizza.

All are closed, and three apartments have been evacuated above the businesses.

A code enforcement officer says inspectors were called here for a sewage leak and found structural problems.

There's no word on the extent of the structural issues or how long that building will be closed in Scranton.
