YONKERS - A two-car garage collapsed in Yonkers this afternoon and narrowly missed people walking by on the sidewalk.

The collapse happened just before 2 p.m. on Oak Street between Yonkers Avenue and Chestnut Street.

Fire officials say there are no reported injuries. They believe the heavy snow and old age of the structure are to blame.

The collapse shut down Oak Street to vehicular traffic for part of the day.

It took firefighters several hours to check if anyone was trapped inside.
