A night­club in North­west was evac­u­ated Sun­day even­ing af­ter the roof deck par­tially col­lapsed, WTOP-FM re­ported. No in­juries were re­ported at Up­roar Lounge and Restau­rant.

D.C. fire­fight­ers said too many peo­ple were on the roof deck of the night­club, adding that the in­ci­dent was caused by a “small struc­tural col­lapse.”
