LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - Four people are recovering after a backyard deck collapsed at a home in Littleton, falling about 10 feet.
The Denver Post reports that 10 to 15 adults were on the deck when it collapsed at a backyard party Tuesday night. Roland Seno of Littleton Fire Rescue said the deck collapsed diagonally into the home.
A Littleton building inspector was called to the home, and firefighters stabilized the deck before leaving the home.
Four people were hospitalized. Their names and injuries weren't immediately released.
