According to NBC News, the building collapsed from an apparent explosion.

There were two buildings in proximity to the collapse, the first housed a piano repair shop with apartments above. The second building housed a church.

Debris from the building collapse caused Metro-North service to be suspended. The building is reported to be five or six stories tall.
