ALBION – Firefighters were called to Fischer’s News Stand this morning after glass shattered from one of the second-floor windows and fell on the sidewalk.

The building was inspected for electrical problems, but none were found.

Firefighters are pictured at about 9 a.m. this morning at Fischer’s.

After speculation the building may have shifted, causing the window to break and fall out, Code Enforcement Officer Ron Vendetti said the building may need to be inspected by an engineer to make sure it is structurally sound.

Vendetti said it may just have been a tight window or a bird could have caused the problem.

Fischer’s owner Gary Withey had a new roof and other building repairs made in 2009. The building at 105-107 North Main St. was built in 1828 and is one of the oldest on Main Street.
