DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Police and fire rescue responded to a partial garage collapse at the Renaissance on Turtle Creek Friday afternoon. As of Friday night, there were no reported victims. Five search and rescue dogs ran the collapse zone without a "life hit".

And though garage cameras didn't indicate anyone was inside the cars within the collapse zone, property management were still in the process of making sure all of its residents were accounted for into the night.

"It sounded like a plane crash," one resident told CBS11 News.

A large parking garage with multiple levels collapsed, leaving a massive hole. According to resident Nick Parrillo, a pile of concrete rubble was left on a deck near where the collapse happened.

"I'm sure several cars fell through the hole," said Parrillo. "We had some leaks coming in from the pool," he added about a possible cause for the collapse.


Building and structural engineers determined the building is not safe for anyone to go inside, according to Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans.

Dallas Fire Rescue and Task Force engineers will stay on site with equipment to assist in monitoring the integrity of the structure while management, and their engineers make the final determination on what to do with it going forward.
