No one was inside at the time and no one was injured, the Fire Department said.
Ring doorbell video from across the street showed the roof and some exterior walls of the wood-frame structure collapse with a thunderous crash. Aside from one man standing on the sidewalk, the block appears to be deserted.
The Department of Buildings was also called to the scene.
The cause of the collapse remained under investigation late Thursday afternoon.
