A building under construction at 214 Carlton Avenue in Fort Greene apparently had a "structural collapse" this morning, with two people trapped in the basement. We're guessing the construction is a renovation of some kind, since a search turns up several years of sales at the building. UPDATE: Two workers were apparently injured in the collapse, one of them very seriously, and both have been taken to the hospital. UPDATE 2: The Local is reporting that one of the construction workers was killed. Brownstoner has photos of the building. [Twitter/@NYScanner]
