Some bricks fell off an apartment building in Boston's Back Bay and struck a vehicle Thursday night, amid Halloween festivities, police said.

No one was hurt when the bricks fell about 7:45 p.m. on Hereford Street between Newbury Street and Commonwealth Avenue, according to the Boston Police Department.

The Boston Inspectional Services Department has been called to investigate.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the bricks to fall.

The Halloween night storm lashing Boston Thursday night was expected to bring high winds, but the strongest gusts weren't expected until 11 p.m.
