Multiple people are being evaluated for injuries after an occupied deck collapsed in Germantown, Maryland, on Saturday evening.
At least two adults sustained non-life-threatening injures as a result of the collapse, Pete Piringer, chief spokesman for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service, said in post on Twitter.
The collapse occurred at around 7:30 p.m. at a home on Perrone Drive.
Officials believe the deck was overcrowded and likely separated from the house due to ineffective connections and rotten wood.
MCFRS said it notified a building inspector to determine to cause of the collapse.
