A porch collapsed at 39 Harborview Place in Bridgeport. There were no injuries and no risk of further damage to structure, officials say.

Phone wires were pulled from the side the home. Only one person was near the porch roof when it fell, firefighters say, and he refused treatment.

A city building inspector and the homeowner’s insurance adjuster are enroute to the scene.

A compliance officer from the Bridgeport OSHA field office will investigate the incident, an OSHA official said. The porch was being remodeled when the collapse occurred.
