Horrible news. I saw it covered (no sound) just after it happened. The place was pretty much flattened.

Yeah, Apparently the building that collapsed was actually empty at the time. It was being torn down but something went wrong and it fell on the salvation army thrift next door which was doing business and full of people.

Jeez. :(

Hope this wasn't one of BFI's real-estate investments!

From what I've seen, I think he only is interested if it starts out in the "after" condition.
