One of the oldest buildings in Hintonburg may be torn down.

The exterior wall of the Magee House on Wellington St. W partially collapsed Tuesday night.

No one was hurt. It's not clear what caused the collapse. Seven people from near-by properties have been displaced.

Councillor Jeff Leiper told CTV Morning Live Wednesday morning that a city engineer is recommending the building be demolished. Leiper added City Staff and heritage experts are now looking at possible options to see if at least part of the building can be saved.

The Magee House was built in 1874 and given heritage designation in 1996.

Fire crews and city staff are working to determine the structural integrity of the building. If deemed unstable, it may need to be torn down.

Wellington St. W. is closed between Sherbrooke Ave. and Carruthers Ave. It's expected to be closed until Thursday morning.
