A home in Baltimore's Reservoir Hill neighborhood partially collapsed during a thunderstorm Tuesday evening.

According to Baltimore fire department spokesman Ian Brennan, crews responded around 6:15 to find a building in the 2100 block of Mount Royal Terrace partially collapsed. No injuries were reported, Brennan said.

The fire department cleared the scene around 6:30 p.m., Brennan said, and the city's building inspector was contacted to investigate the scene.

The cause of the collapse was not immediately known.

A bystander told The Sun a stone facade on the home fell toward the street.
