No one was injured when a wall collapsed in St. Paul early Friday morning.

A St. Paul Fire Department spokesperson said Thursday night's severe weather contributed to the crumbling, which occurred on a building near Rice Street on Sherburne Avenue.

The falling debris did severely damage a vehicle, the spokesperson said. A restoration company is working to repair the wall.

"Amazing, what we saw," neighbor Willie Berry said. "There was a car sitting here with bricks all over it, and just bricks everywhere."

Berry said the collapse occurred around 4:30 a.m., waking him and his fiancee. 

"If you get a strong wind, I believe more will fall," Berry said. "That's a dangerous area to be walking in right now."
