A deck collapse at a southern New Jersey home injured several people Thursday.

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

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.

The cause of the collapse remains under investigation.
