A beachfront condo tower has partially collapsed in the Miami-area town of Surfside.

More than 80 units responded to the condominium building that collapsed near 88th Street and Collins Avenue just north of Miami Beach around 2 a.m., Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials said.

CBS News reported that at least one person is dead and people are being extracted from the collapse. "Look at the building, it's gone".

"Miami-Dade Fire Rescue is on scene, they're conducting rescues as we speak", Surfside Police Sgt. Two were in critical condition.

Some 15 families walked out of the building alive on their own and were put up in a local hotel, according to Burkett.

The 12-story building was built in 1981 and has more than 130 units, records showed.

"Over 80 MDFR units including #TRT (Technical Rescue Teams) are on scene with assistance from municipal fire departments", the tweet said. He said his wife and the elderly woman were both rescued. "What I can tell you is the building is twelve floors".

The cause of the collapse was still unknown, Miami-Dade mayor Daniella Levine Cava told the Herald.

"We are so grateful to @MiamiDadeFire, @MiamiBeachFire and all the first responders on the scene - may they stay safe while working to save lives".

This is a developing story.
