The FDNY responded to a reported partial building collapse at 901 Myrtle Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, near Marcy Avenue, tonight, according to NBC 4 New York. However, ABC News’ Bill Ritter reported on Twitter that the apparent collapse was a “hoax.”
Fire officials told NBC 4 that one person was being treated for minor injuries at the scene—a vacant building under construction.
