SIDNEY -- A former church is now a pile of boards and nails. The building on the corner of Byron and White collapsed Saturday afternoon. It's had structural issues for the past six months.

It was once a Nazarene Church and later became a children's theater. Neighbors say they heard a noise and found the building was already caved in. No one was inside the building when it fell.

The owner stopped using the theater in March because of its poor condition. Picklesimer says he has plans to rebuild the structure.
