WASHINGTON (AP) - Fenwick Street in Washington remained closed Monday morning after part of building on the street collapsed.

The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1Xep2cC ) reports that a large portion of the brick outer wall of the vacant building collapsed Sunday, forcing officials to close the road.

Doug Buchanan, a spokesman for the Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department, says strong winds might have contributed to the collapse. The building used to be a tomato-packing plant.

No injuries were reported.

Metro said Monday that its buses were running late because of the street closures in the area.
