A heritage building in Hintonburg has partially collapsed.

Around 6:40 p.m. Tuesday, fire crews responded to a 911 call for a wall collapse at 1119 Wellington Street West. 

Crews arrived to find the left side of the building had collapsed, while the remainder of the building appeared stable.

The three-storey building, known as Magee House, was built in 1874. 

There were no injuries, but five women, two men and a cat have been displaced from adjoining buildings. 

It's not yet known if the building can be salvaged. 

Wellington Street West is expected to remain closed between Parkdale and Bayswater for at least the remainder of the day.
