A partial building collapse has closed portions of two streets in Hartford on Thursday. 

The Office of Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin says that there was a partial structure collapse in the morning hours at 213 Capen Street. 

The Hartford Fire Department was called to the scene and evacuated everyone from the building without injury. 

Police then closed Garden Street to north and southbound traffic between Edgewood Street and Greenfield Street, and Capen Street to east and westbound traffic between its intersections with Enfield Street and Garden Street.

The closure is expected to last through the day.
