July 26, 2019

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. (AP) — A deck collapse at a southern New Jersey home has injured several people.

But it’s still not clear what caused the collapse in Sea Isle City early Thursday.

It’s not clear how many people were on the deck at the time or how many were hurt. But none of the injuries are believed to be serious.

Authorities say a party was being held at the 77th Street home when the collapse occurred around 1:30 a.m. Witnesses reported hearing a loud noise shortly before the collapse occurred.

The collapse remains under investigation.
