Historic Firehouse Crumbled When Moved

Remember the collapsing monument we posted before on Neatorama?

Well, long-time Neatorama reader MoonCake sent us this video clip of a historic firehouse that crumbled when they tried to move it: http://www.whiotv.com/video/17263614/index.html - Thanks MoonCake!

That's sad. It's kind of difficult to move brick buildings, really they're nothing more than piles without some sort of timber frame. That's why the brick buildings in Seattle have survived so many earthquakes, right from the start they were built with enormous timber frames because, well, we had a lot of trees.
