A house collapsed on Thursday in the 300 block of Edgar Street in Evansville, Indiana.

Dispatch says a caller reported the collapsed building around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, and that no one was inside of the building at the time of its collapse. Members of the Evansville Fire Department responded to the scene shortly after the call was made.

While no injuries were reported as a result of the building's collapse, a female was trapped in between the collapsed home and the neighboring building for a short time.

The house that collapsed caused serious damage to the home next to it, leaving both homeowners searching for a new place to stay temporarily. The Red Cross is assisting in those efforts.

Officials and neighbors speculate that harsh winds mixed with the poor structural integrity of the building led to its collapse.
