GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) — Scores of injured are recovering after a backyard deck strained by visitors to a Maryland house party collapsed.

Media reports say about 100 people were checked for possible injuries after the Saturday night celebration at a townhouse in Germantown, about 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) north of Washington, D.C. No serious injuries were reported.

Montgomery County authorities say the deck may have been overcrowded during a family celebration.
