MANTEO, N.C. — The Cape Hatteras National Seashore warns visitors to be careful while on an area of the beach after a house collapsed.

They say most of the debris is at the site of the home at 24183 Ocean Drive, Rodanthe. There are smaller amounts of debris that have been spotted as more than seven miles away, near ORV ramp 23.

Officials did not say if anyone was home at the time of the collapse or the cause.
