The roof of 17 Munsell St. in Binghamton has apparently collapsed from the snow, leaving part of the home ready to literally fall apart.

This afternoon, Binghamton firefighters were on scene as the chimney could be seen significantly leaning towards the house next door. When the roof collapsed it put pressure on the walls and they started pushing out. Firefighters were working to contact the house's owner.

The walls will likely have to be shored up until a permanent solution is come up with. Several neighbors suggest knocking the eyesore down. They say it has been vacant for several years.
