The rear wall of a three-story South Slope building completely collapsed on Friday, authorities said.

The back wall of the brick building on 16th Street between Seventh Avenue and Jackson Place came crashing down at 2:10 pm, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The building is currently under construction and no one was injured at the time of the collapse, according to officials.

The fire department is conducting a structural stability inspection on the building, which the Department of Buildings issued a complaint against in August for illegal after-hours construction work.
