RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – No injuries have been reported after two buildings partially collapse on the city's Northside.

Both buildings came down shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday. One was an apartment building in the 300 block of Baker Street. The roof and a portion of the building's third floor crashed to the ground.

The other incident happened just a few blocks away in the 2600 block of Chamberlayne Avenue at a commercial building.  

Crews were initially called to the area for a fire at Emerald Tire. When firefighters arrived much of the building had already fallen. No word yet on exactly what caused the buildings to crumble.
