Portion of parking deck collapses in Atlanta

June 29, 2009

ATLANTA (AP) -- Part of a parking deck at a building near downtown Atlanta has collapsed and firefighters are waiting to make sure it's safe before searching through piles of crushed cars for possible victims.

Atlanta firefighter Bobby Stewart says there are no immediate reports of injuries. He says about 50 firefighters are at the scene waiting until they determine the deck is safe to enter.

The parking deck is close to a book store and gym frequented by students from nearby Georgia Tech.

Shawn Dodson says he was eating lunch in his car on the far side of the building and the collapse "sounded like the building was being demolished."
