Building Partially Collapses in North Philly

Crews are at the scene of a building collapse in North Philadelphia.

The roof and the third floor of a vacant building on 3527 North Smedley Street collapsed Tuesday afternoon. No one was injured during the incident.

L&I officials were called to the scene and are checking to see if there is any danger of the rest of the building coming down.

The collapse comes only two days after a vacant two-story home collapsed on Limekiln Pike and Ogontz Avenue. During that collapse, two people who were walking by the building were struck by debris as it caved in.
