NEW YORK (AP) - New York's fire department says a building partly collapsed and caught fire in Lower Manhattan, sending six people to hospitals.
At least three of them are in serious condition.
The Fire Department got the call around 12:45 p.m. Thursday. The fire was under control shortly after 1:30 p.m.
CBS New York says initial reports suggest there may have been a gas explosion on the first floor of the building.
