NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Part of a Norfolk apartment complex walkway has crumbled, leading to one unit being evacuated.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief Julian Williamson says the second-floor walkway began falling apart early Monday. He says nobody has been injured. The one person who was ordered to leave the building was still able to take the stairs down to the first floor.

Williamson says there are five units in the building.

The apartment building is in the Ocean View section of Norfolk.
