The roof of a Best Buy warehouse in Woodside partially collapsed Monday night.

More than a dozen firefighters responded to the location, at 32-49 49th St., after the incident was reported around 7 p.m.

No one was injured in the incident, fire officials said. The building — a storage unit for Best Buy — was closed at the time, WABC reported. The warehouse is located across the street from the Best Buy store.

The collapse knocked out a wall of the building into an adjacent parking lot and took out a gas line, FDNY Battalion Chief Brian Deery said in a statement from the scene.

Officials did not believe that winds were a factor, according to FOX5.

A vacate order for the warehouse was issued, and the FDNY requested an inspection into the building’s structural stability, according to the Department of Buildings website.
