Scaffolding on the roof of a four-story building partially collapsed and some restaurants had to be evacuated in D.C. Sunday.
D.C. Fire and EMS were called to the 3200 block of Prospect Street Northwest around 5:55 p.m. for reports of a scaffolding collapse.
On scene firefighters found a "large section of scaffolding... leaning over [the] sidewalk in precarious position," the department said in a tweet. They also said there was a danger of it further toppling onto the street.
There are several restaurants near the building, including Peacock Café, Mai Thai and Café Milano. Firefighters evacuated those restaurants and created a collapse zone.
The collapse damaged some outdoor seating areas, but no injuries were reported.
Crews were called to secure the rest of the scaffolding and Prospect Street remains closed.
