“So far, several were rescued and transported to hospitals,” reads the Philadelphia Fire Department’s tweet, posted at 6:05 a.m. ET. The department still was working to rescue others, it added.
The collapse at 300 W. Indiana St. in the city’s Fairhill neighborhood happened during a fire response, the department said. Details about a fire, the collapse or what the building housed weren’t immediately available.
At the site, firefighters and others stood near or walked around a large pile — more than head-high — of metal, wood and other debris, video from CNN affiliate WPVI showed.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
