High winds overnight may be to blame for a house collapse on Chicago’s South Side.

The two and a half story building came down in  the 6300 block of South Evans Avenue in the Grand Crossing neighborhood .

It was vacant and may have been under renovation, police said.

The building  fell onto the house next door, damaging that home as well.

By interviewing neighbors and using body-sensing technology, firefighters determined the home had been unoccupied when it collapsed, police said.

No one was injured.
