HARLEM, N.Y. (WABC) -- A few residents were evacuated from an adjoining building after a vacant building became unstable Saturday afternoon.

An unstable fire escape and partial wall collapse at an unoccupied four-story building forced the evacuation of three residents on West 126th Street in Harlem.

The three lived in three apartments in an adjoining building.

The two buildings share the same fire escape.

No injuries were reported. The buildings department responded to the scene.
