BOSTON (WHDH) - Seven people were injured and three were taken to the hospital after a third-floor porch collapsed in Roxbury late Saturday night, sending them falling about 12 feet to the ground, officials said.

Crews responding to a reported porch collapse at 527 Dudley St. found the injured people and debris on the street, according to Deputy Fire Chief Scott Malone. It appears a 4×10 section of the porch gave way.

The cause of the collapse remains under investigation.
