KATY, Texas (AP) Officials say only two of the 36 people who were taken to Houston-area hospitals after part of a floor collapsed under a large crowd remain hospitalized.

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.

Most taken for medical care Thursday had minor injuries.

The collapse occurred while as many as 125 people assembled for a religious 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.
