BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (CNN) -- At least one person was killed and two buses were damaged when an overpass bridge under construction collapsed in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, one of the host cities for the ongoing World Cup, said CNN affiliate TV Record, which cited firefighters.

Images that circulated on social media showed a bus trapped underneath the collapsed structure.

No further details were immediately available.

Belo Horizonte will host Tuesday's semifinal match between the winner of the France-Germany match and the winner of the Brazil-Colombia game.

The city has so far hosted five World Cup games since June 14, when Colombia beat Greece 3-0. Tuesday's game will be the last to be hosted by the city in this year's World Cup.

The U.S. team did not compete there this year.

Most recently, Brazil and Chile played to a 1-1 tie in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.

The World Cup matches in Belo Horizonte are played in the 58,170-seat Estadio Mineirao, one of the most historic venues in Brazilian soccer.

The venue was overhauled for the games: The pitch surface was lowered, accessibility improved, and a system installed to capture and store rainwater for reuse. The facility's official name is Estadio Governador Magalhaes Pinto, but it's commonly known as the Mineirao. The stadium is home to Atletico Mineiro and Cruzeiro, both former national champions in Brazil.
