Report of Brooklyn building collapse a false alarm

NEW YORK (AP) -- A report that a building had partially collapsed in Brooklyn has turned into a false alarm.

A fire department spokesman now says there was no partial collapse. He says firefighters had initially responded to report of a partial collapse at a building under construction on Myrtle Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant just after 8 p.m. Thursday.

He says firefighters removed a person at the scene who claimed he was a victim of the partial collapse. He says that person was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

Police say they are investigating the incident as a possible false report.
