KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

City streets were blocked off early Wednesday morning after there were reports of debris falling from the side of a building.

It happened in downtown Kansas City, MO near 12th St. and Walnut Street about 1 a.m.

Chunks of the façade, the size of a shoe box, according to witnesses, were falling off the building.

Police believe the debris was leftover construction material that wasn’t properly put away.

There is construction being done on the east side of the building.

Debris was found on the south end.

Police blocked off parts of 12th St, from Walnut Street to Main Street, as a precaution.

All roads have since been reopened.

The building is the office of Andrews McMeel Universal, a publishing company.

Police are unsure if the weather played a role in the incident.
