Firefighters are on the scene at a building collapse in New York City.
A six-story building on 116th Street in East Harlem, between Madison and Park, has reportedly partially collapsed in a three-alarm fire.
Witnesses are reporting a large explosion that blew out the windows as the street became engulfed in smoke.
No official word yet on the cause of the fire, but we do know that the building housed a Spanish Christian Church and piano repair shop. Right now the FDNY is still working on putting out the blaze, with 168 members from 39 units responding.
So far only minor injuries reported; for now we pray that holds.
