WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The parking garage at the Watergate complex in Washington suffered a structural collapse on Friday, local authorities and local media reported.

The Washington fire department said on Twitter that it had units on scene at the complex, located in northwest Washington near the State Department and made famous by a 1972 political scandal. The local NBC affiliate said one person was reportedly injured.
