Emergency crews evacuated several apartments in an unstable building in the Bronx on Monday night. The five-story building is located along East 173rd Street in the Crotna Park section.

Cracks were found in the basement walls, officials said.

Eight of the 16 apartments in the building have been evacuated.

That means more than 40 people were forced out of their homes at least for the night.
