KATY, Texas (AP) — Officials say only two people remain hospitalized a day after a floor collapsed under a large crowd at a Houston-area religious gathering.

West I-10 Fire Department spokesman Tim Thomas said Friday no information was being released about the conditions of the two individuals still receiving treatment.

Officials say 36 people were transported to hospitals Thursday, with most suffering from minor injuries.

The collapse occurred while as many as 125 people assembled for the event at a suburban Houston home. At least 40 people were in an apartment above a detached garage when the floor gave way.

Thomas said Friday the floor had not "pancaked in" as first reported but that only a portion of the floor collapsed.

The cause of the collapse is still being investigated.
