Officers were called to the scene at the corner of Lane Avenue and Butterworth Street SW just after 5 a.m. Friday. There, they found a vacant home that had partially folded, spilling some debris onto the shoulder of the street.

No one was injured.

Officers put caution tape around the structure shortly thereafter; however, there are no road closures.

It’s unclear what caused the building to collapse and what officials plan to do with the damaged structure.
