A parking garage partially collapsed in Irving late Tuesday morning.

It happened around 11:30 am in the 4500 block Fuller Drive.

Texas Sky Ranger video showed cars both upstairs and under concrete slabs collapsed from a top floor. Other vehicles were stacked against each other.

On Tuesday afternoon, Irving's fire department assistant Fire Chief J. Taylor confirmed that the dog units had verified that no one was injured in the collapse of the rubble.

"There are no visual victims in any of the cars we can physically reach," Taylor said.

The Irving Fire Department confirmed that there are 21 vehicles, but specific details about the damage are not yet known.

"It may take a few days for us to come to them [the cars]." It's a small challenge, "said Taylor. "A secondary collapse is always our biggest fear, it seems to be stable, but we do not know that, every rocking that occurred in this breakdown has to be evaluated."

The cause of the collapse is under investigation. OSHA officials are also on their way to the investigation.

The garage offers parking for professional offices in Irving.

The collapse is reminiscent of the one who lived in a Renaissance Turtle Creek in 2015 in a Uptown Dallas parking garage.
