Search halted in Pa. building collapse; 6 dead

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The search-and-rescue operation at a deadly building collapse in Philadelphia has been halted for the moment. 
After working through the night, firefighters and rescue workers remain at the scene Thursday morning but are not actively combing through debris. 
Authorities have not officially ended the search, but the sense of urgency has subsided since the last victim, a 61-year-old woman, was rescued from the rubble nearly 13 hours after the collapse.  
A building under demolition crashed onto a neighboring thrift store late Wednesday morning, killing six people.
Fourteen-people were injured, including the 61-year-old woman, who is hospitalized in critical condition.
