By Mike Fourcher | Monday, September 13, 2010

Sunday's porch collapse was on the 3700 N. Ashland block.

The Sun Times is reporting that eight people were injured early Sunday morning in a second-floor porch collapse on the block of 3700 N. Ashland.

Four people were treated at the scene and four people were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital for further treatment.

The porch on the two-flat building was not subject to new city ordinances requiring annual structural inspections passed following the summer 2003 porch collapse in 2003 that killed 12 and injured more than 50 people.
