A house crumbled in Syracuse, New York, on Tuesday, causing injuries to at least 11 people, according to officials.

Firefighters rushed to the scene after receiving multiple 911 calls reporting what seemed like an explosion at a two-story house around 4 p.m., Syracuse Fire Chief Michael Monds informed reporters.

Upon arrival, firefighters found several victims already outside in the front yard. They had to extract at least one young person who was trapped inside a car buried under debris, Monds stated.

The residents, including children and adults, were transported to Upstate University Hospital.

Monds mentioned that two individuals were in critical condition. By Tuesday evening, all 13 residents had been located and accounted for, as reported by The Post-Standard.

Monds explained that authorities from both the police and fire departments will conduct an investigation into the cause of the house collapse. The building, which dates back to 1920, posed additional challenges for firefighters due to downed power lines and a strong smell of natural gas at the scene.

More than 50 firefighters responded to the incident and had to rotate shifts because of the intense heat that hit Syracuse and other parts of the country that day, Monds added.
