Brooklyn, NY - Firefighters say two floors have collapsed in a Brooklyn building under renovation, but no one has been seriously hurt.

The Fire Department says no one was trapped inside when the third and fourth floors of a four-story building at 172 Division Avenue fell around 6:45 p.m. The building is near Roebling Street in the Williamsburg neighborhood.

The city Buildings Department hasn’t immediately returned a telephone call. One worker was transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
