HOUSTON (AP) — Houston-area emergency personnel are treating multiple people for injuries after a roof collapsed during a gathering in a residential neighborhood there, authorities said Thursday.

Authorities said it appears the roof of a garage collapsed on Thursday afternoon in west Harris County, as dozens of people gathered for an event.

A makeshift triage area was established in the front yards of homes. Officials said approximately 30 people have been taken to hospitals, mostly with minor injuries.

No other information was immediately available.
