5 People Injured In Lakeview House Collapse

Five people have been injured during a partial house collapse in New Orleans' Lakeview neighborhood.

Authorities said the building collapsed about 11:30 a.m. Thursday near the intersection of Mound Avenue and Catina Street.

A spokesman for the New Orleans Fire Department tells The Times-Picayune that calls initially indicated that people were trapped inside the collapse, but no one was seriously injured.

EMS spokeswoman Liz Belcher says five people — all listed in stable condition — were taken to area hospitals.

The cause of the collapse has not yet been determined.
