At least three people have been found injured following a partial building collapse in downtown Cincinnati. The incident occurred around 1 p.m. at 151 West 4th St. near Vine Street. The building has been under construction recently and was still in progress at the time.

According to officials on scene, construction crews were in the middle of pouring concrete on the sixth floor of the building, which caused the partial collapse.

Three contractors working on the fifth floor were injured. Fire officials said two suffered serious injuries and one suffered relatively minor injuries. All victims are currently in stable condition.

Fire Chief Roy Winston said there is still an active search for more potential victims. Winston said there were a variety of contractors on the scene, and crews are checking with each to ensure everyone is accounted for.

Officials also noted that no one on the ground was injured during the collapse.
