A multi-story building has collapsed in the Carroll Gardens area of Brooklyn, New York, videos, photos and reports show.

It's unknown what happened and unclear if there are injuries. Neighbors in the area say that the first floor of the building had a gym in it. Gyms have been closed in New York due to the coronavirus, so there is hope that it was empty.

According to Gothamist, dozens of firefighters are on the scene but couldn't confirm if there were any people in the building.

One person on Twitter noted that there were cars crushed and it is clear there is a huge gas leak.
