The FDNY was at the scene of a partial building collapse in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn on Tuesday afternoon.

There are very few details but it happened around 2 p.m. at 1438 Fulton Street. The building was apparently unoccupied.

The building involved is four stories tall. It appears that the 3rd floor collapsed onto the 2nd floor.

Three people suffered minor injuries, Fox 5's Lisa Evers reported. One of those people was outside of the building and was hit by falling debris. A search of the inside of the building did not turn up any victims.

Authorities evacuated neighboring buildings.

Officials with the Department of Buildings are investigating.

The incident caused subway delays in the area for a few hours.
