Nobody hurt in Minneapolis partial building collapse

MINNEAPOLIS — Fire officials say nobody was injured in a partial building collapse at a construction site in the warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis.

Assistant Chief Cherie Penn says firefighters responded to the call shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday.

Penn says no construction workers and no firefighters were hurt, and the fire department has already cleared the scene and turned it over to officials with the city's regulatory services department. She says construction work has been halted for the day.

She says the cause of the partial collapse was not immediately known, and she didn't have details about the extent of the damage or about the construction project.
