The roofs of two rowhomes collapsed in the Cobbs Creek neighborhood of Philadelphia.

Rescue crews responded the scene along Spruce Street near 60th.

From Skyforce10, you could see that the tops of the homes caved in. The weight of the collapse sent the second floor of one home crushing down to ground level and punching the porch out over the front steps.

The collapse appears to have compromised a third home as well.

No one was injured during the incident.

Contractors are in the process of demolishing the homes piece by piece. The Red Cross is currently assisting two families and four people who were affected by the collapse. A family of three is staying at Red Cross House.
