A house under construction collapsed onto the home next-door in Toronto’s west end on Thursday, according to the city’s fire department.

Toronto Fire Services responded to the “structural collapse” around 2:20 pm, which was determined to involve a house that was under construction.

They said that there were no reported injuries, and that Toronto Building and the Ministry of Labour were notified.

Toronto police said that the incident occurred near Jane Street and Homeview Avenue, and the collapse may have been a result of yesterday’s strong winds.

Roads were closed in the area around 3 pm, and were reopened around 9:40 pm.
