Most of the patients were treated and released from the hospital over the weekend, fire department spokesperson Lt. Jennifer Macallair said.

Fire department crews were able to stabilize the 20-by-30-foot deck on Roesler Avenue. The cause of the collapse is unknown, and the owner’s insurance company has taken over the investigation.
