The Billings Police Department, the Billings Fire Department, and American Medical Response (AMR) responded to a rescue call around 7:50 pm Saturday after a report of multiple injuries following a patio’s collapse, according to a statement posted on Facebook.
No life-threatening injuries or fatalities occurred, NBC affiliate KULR-8 reported.
Eight people were treated and released on scene, officials said. Other injured individuals walked away from the scene and did not receive medical treatment.
