Chennai: Two persons were killed when a nearly 50 year-old building at the busy Triplicane area in the city collapsed on Wednesday morning.
Fire and Rescue Department officials said two persons were rescued from the debris after the collapse.
Many teams of rescuers were involved in the operations.
Neighbours alleged that the building owner had not paid heed to their advice to take up repair works.
