PARK SLOPE, Brooklyn — FDNY officials are the scene of a partial building collapse in Park Slope late Thursday night.

It happened around 11:01 p.m. at 217 9th St. near 4th Avenue.

Two neighboring buildings had to be evacuated and the building has been stabilized, according to FDNY Deputy Chief John Hodgens.

The 3-story building, which had been slated for demolition, will be demolished at a time earlier than expected, said Hodgens.

No one was inside the building at the time of the collapse, and no injuries have been reported, officials said.

A full vacate order was issued for the partially collapsed building, and one violation was issued to the building owner for failure to maintain the building, according to the Department of Buildings.

Investigation determined that the building had partially collapsed from the roof to the ground level and determined the remainder of the structure had the potential for further collapse, the Department of Buildings said.

All residents affected by the vacate orders were offered assistance by the American Red Cross.
