Crews are assessing the situation to ensure the area is safe. A two-block section of both Main and Foley is expected to be closed to the public until around noon.

Business owners told 2 News the building had 'known' issues. There are several businesses closed within the area of the business.

Officials ask all drivers adhere to traffic barriers and pedestrians not cross the caution tape line.

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has closed the highway as a precaution while the city and others work the collapse.

According to ODOT, all lanes of US-69B/SH-9 (Main St.) are closed at Foley St. in downtown Eufaula (McIntosh County) until further notice due to a nearby building collapse.

The highway itself wasn't impacted, and the closure is a precaution at this time.
