(KGTV) — One woman was rescued and another person was reportedly buried after a partial cliff collapse at San Francisco's Fort Funston beach area.

San Francisco Fire Department said the woman was rescued after she fell over a cliff after a partial collapse. The victim's injuries were not life threatening, according to SFFD.

Another person was buried under the collapse, according to the fire department. SFFD K9 teams were combing the collapsed heap of dirt and rock searching for the victim.

It wasn't clear if the person trapped also fell from the cliff or was below on the beach during the collapse.

No further information was immediately available.

Video from KPIX showed a line of firefighters digging through the debris, as a canine searched back-and-forth.
