ST. LOUIS - A St. Louis man got a surprise when firefighters came to his home and told him the back of his house had collapsed.

The house is located on the 4500 block of Enright. The resident was home when the brick wall fell, but he had no idea that it had happened. Someone driving through the neighborhood notified firefighters.

The man who lived at the house knew it was in bad shape and had recently gotten a bid to get it repaired. He will be staying somewhere else until it is deemed safe to enter.
