Investigators were on the scene Monday night of a partial wall collapse at the intersection of Pine and Spring streets in Bristol. The Bucks County Courier Times reports the incident happened at the 100-year-old corner unit on a grouping of rowhomes. No injuries were reported, but the debris did fall on a gas meter, prompting PECO to be called to the scene to secure a gas leak.

PECO Energy crews cut off power to the home and secured the gas main. By 8 p.m., neighbors were allowed to return to their homes, but the home where the collapse occurred is uninhabitable, [Fire Cheif Herb] Slack said.

The home was scheduled for an inspection a few hours prior to the collapse and officials had closed the section of road on Pine Street as a precaution.

With a danger of further collapse, Pine Street at Spring Street will remain closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic at least overnight with fire police securing the area, Slack said.
