The home depot in Brooklyn has broken down and has been abandoned, according to a local news outlet.
The store, which was a popular destination for people to buy home improvement products, has not yet been found.
The Home Depot was located at 875 N. 8th Street.
The business was shut down at 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday by a homeowner who told the New York Daily News that the store had been shut down for over a week.
The news outlet said the property owner told them the store was abandoned for several weeks.
The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Daily News said the news outlet received multiple calls from neighbors in the area who saw the store being used as a dumpster on Wednesday.
The New York City Fire Department responded to the scene and extinguished the fire.
“The home depot is completely out of control,” one woman told the news organization.
“It’s just a shame it happened here.”
Home Depot’s headquarters were in a neighboring building, but the company said it was a “temporary” move.
Home Depot said in a statement that the company was unable to provide an estimate on the number of people living in the store.
The website reported that the site was a rental property owned by a former tenant.
The building was demolished in the 1970s.
The Brooklyn Home Depot opened in 1975.
It was originally a store for furniture and home furnishings.
In 2013, the company closed for good.
The home’s current owner, who did not want to be identified, told the Daily News the company has been operating on a “shaky foundation.”
The company said that it is a tenant in two other vacant properties in Brooklyn, which is also located at the same location.
“We’re working with the city on a plan to make sure this is not an issue again,” Home Depot spokeswoman Natalie Kowalczyk told the News.
“If it were up to us, we would not be at the store in this condition.”
