A Florida condo one block from Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's apartment that collapsed in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
Part of the Champlain Towers South on Collins Avenue in Surfside, Florida collapsed just after 1 a.m. Thursday.
Videos and pictures posted on Twitter showed debris from the collapsed building and fire fighters swarming the area.
It's unclear if anyone is trapped in the building, but a video from the crime scene showed people being rescued from the balconies of the collapsed apartment. Tweets from student reporter Eric Wasserman, who is on site, also noted that residents were still trapped in the un-collapsed portion of the building and that more than one person was injured, including a firefighter.
According to a tweet by the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, there are currently more than 80 units on site in what the department calls a "partial building collapse". Miami Beach Police also tweeted that several police and fire departments across the Miami-Dade district are supporting the Miami-Dade Fire Department.
Champlain Towers South's property profile indicates that it was built in 1981. There are 136 units on the 12-story property, which sells two- and three-bedroom units between $ 590,000 and $ 915,000.
The site of the building collapse is minutes from the ultra-classy Arte Surfside, where Kushner and Trump are reportedly renting a house. Insider Katie Warren wrote that the couple had pledged to rent a "large unfurnished unit" for at least a year shortly after purchasing $ 32 million property on a private island known as Miami's "Billionaires Bunker." .
The fire department and police in the area did not immediately respond to inquiries from insiders as to whether someone was injured or injured in the collapse of the building.
It's not the first time a building has collapsed on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. In 2018, CNN reported that an empty 13-story building on 5775 Collins Avenue that was about to be demolished collapsed at an unplanned time, seriously injuring one person.
