HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Trinity College officials said one student remained in the hospital on Tuesday after a deck collapse incident at an off-campus house on Saturday night.

Thirty-one people were hurt when a third floor deck collapsed on the two decks below it, at the Broad Street home.

Five students live in the home and they threw a party on Saturday evening. Eyewitnesses said there were about 10 people on each deck at the time of the collapse.

The home is not a fraternity house but the students who live there are part of Greek life.

Although Trinity College owns the house, it is not managed by the school.

The cause of the collapse remains under investigation at this time.

Eyewitness News learned that the last time the home was inspected was 10 years ago.

The only permit the city has on record was in 2009 for renovations. Eyewitness News didn’t see anything since Trinity bought the property.

City records show the home was inspected in the summer of 2006 and in 1998.

The city isn't required to inspect two-family homes, unless there is an active compliant. Currently, there is not a compliant on the property.

It’s up to the management company to maintain the property.
