About 30 people were forced from their homes in the Bronx on Monday. Authorities say about 13 units were evacuated inside a six-story building on Barnes Avenue in the Morris Park section.

Emergency officials are concerned with some cracks in the building's structure that they fear could lead to a partial collapse.

The displaced tenants will not be allowed back into their homes until the walls are repaired.

The building's owner was fined for failure to maintain the building.
