CLEVELAND --  Employees, including Cuyahoga County 911 Dispatchers, had to leave the building where they work Tuesday afternoon because of fear the building was going to collapse.

The evacuation happened at the Sterling Building, after it appeared the side of the building was bowing.

The building is located at 1255 Euclid Avenue.

After an inspection, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald said that the structure of the building was not an issue.

The spot on the building in question was a part of a facade that came loose.

Structural engineers were checking to insure things were safe inside before moving employees from various businesses back inside.

FitzGerald said that residents would not notice any sort of disruption to emergency services because of the evacuation.

He said all 911 Dispatchers were moved to an alternate location.
