CHICAGO -- Emergency crews in Chicago responded Tuesday to a partial building collapse at the  Morton Salt company building, 1301 N. Elston.

According to WGN, at least 11 vehicles at a nearby dealership lot were buried by salt after the south wall of the building collapsed.

Fire officials tell WGN that workers at the facility piled the salt  higher than they were supposed to, and the resulting pressure caused a wall to collapse.

There were no reported injuries.  Click here for a photo gallery of the collapse.
