COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — A University of Missouri fraternity says it’s removing a deck that collapsed over the weekend as people danced on it.

KSHB-TV reports that several people suffered minor injuries when the deck at the Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity house gave way during homecoming festivities. The fraternity says the deck dropped a couple feet.

The fraternity says in a statement that those who were injured were treated at the house and refused further medical care. The statement says the fraternity isn’t aware of any hospitalizations.

The City of Columbia issued a complaint Monday, calling the deck a public nuisance that must be repaired, replaced or demolished. The fraternity says it is cooperating with the city and university.
