FDNY: House collapses on Beacon Court in Gerritsen Beach

A house in Brooklyn slipped off of its foundation Wednesday, according to fire officials.



The house, located on 70 Beacon Court in Gerritsen Beach, has been undergoing construction. But when it collapsed around 2 p.m., no work was being done.



Officials say no one was hurt in the incident.



The FDNY has deemed the construction site structurally stable and did not issue an evacuation order for any of the surrounding buildings.



The house had previously been damaged in Superstorm Sandy, and the family who lived there has been waiting years to move back home.
