Another partial collapse has occurred at a parking garage in northern New Jersey, but no injuries have been reported.

The latest collapse happened around 2:30 p.m. Saturday while crews were removing rubble, glass and other debris from the Hackensack site. It came one day after the three-story garage had pancaked when a glass canopy attached to a nearby high-rise condominium building fell on it.

Officials initially feared that at least one person was trapped in the wreckage and began intensive rescue efforts. But the 22-hour rescue mission was called off Saturday morning after it was determined that no one had been trapped.

Crews were briefly removed from the site after Saturday's collapse, but were expected to return to work later in the day
