NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two homes under construction partially collapsed Tuesday morning in Queens, according to fire officials.

The FDNY said on Twitter that firefighters responded to the scene at 704 Jarvis Avenue in Far Rockaway. It said all searches of the homes were negative.

It’s unclear what caused the houses to collapse, which happened as a late-winter storm slammed the region on Tuesday.
