A wall buckled Monday in a Clifton building that until last summer had been a tavern for 72 years -- raising concerns that a complete collapse could follow.

No injuries were reported after the 40-foot load-bearing wall buckled on the left side of the Dayton Avenue building that once housed Rossi's Tavern shortly before noon, responders told Daily Voice.

The gutted building was being completely renovated.

Although it didn't collapse, surrounding buildings in the Botany Village section were temporarily evacuated as a precaution.

City firefighters, police and the DPW and Building Department were among the responders.
