No one was injured when a vacant building collapsed in Woodhaven Friday evening.

A two-story building partially collapsed in Woodhaven Friday evening, disrupting J train service for several hours, according to reports.

The FDNY responded to the incident around 6 p.m., but after digging through the debris determined that no one was injured in the collapse.

The commercial structure, located at 78-19 Jamaica Avenue, has reportedly been vacant for four to five years.

Firefighters told CBS New York that the recent heavy rain may have contributed to the collapse.
