Some families in Philadelphia's Germantown section had a rude awakening this morning. The rear of a rowhome on the 5600 block of McMahon Avenue partially collapsed just after 7 o'clock.

Everyone got out safely. City inspectors and police evacuated two adjoining rowhomes as a precaution.

In all 13 adults and children are staying elsewhere until inspectors check the stability of those properties.
