SHARON, Vt. -

Five people are injured, but escaped with their lives after a deck collapse in Sharon.

Sharon's volunteer fire chief says the rear deck of the house gave way during a family party Thursday night.

More than a dozen people fell approximately 12 to 14 feet when the structure gave way.

It's unclear what led to the accident, but officials say no one sustained life-threatening injury.

Emergency responders transported patients to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Gifford Medical Center.
