Two people are dead after a building collapse late Friday at an Amazon distribution warehouse in Baltimore, according to fire officials. A second person was also killed as a result of this incident.

Search crews worked hours that night and later found the unaccounted for person under rubble before they were taken to the hospital where they were pronounced dead Saturday morning. "The whole side (of the building) was just dropping", he said.

Brandon McBride, an employee who was in the building at the time of the collapse, told CNN affiliate that "it just sounded like bombs were dropping everywhere". We are working with emergency responders to assess the damage and we are thankful for their quick response this evening.

Officials said there weren't any other reports of people missing.

The site was still an active scene as of Saturday afternoon, and an Amazon spokesperson told the paper that the building had been closed.
