Emergency workers were using dogs, listening devices and thermal cameras to search through rubble of a collapsed parking garage Tuesday, a day after the deck collapsed from the fourth floor to the first level.
Remarkably, no injuries were reported and there were no missing people. But rescuers said they still had not finished searching through the wreckage.
"At this point, we still haven't found any signs of any victims," Atlanta Fire and Rescue spokesman Bobby Stewart said. "We are going to search every corner, every confined space, every vehicle to make sure no victim is left behind."
The search stalled during the night when the building shifted. It took fire crews several hours to shore up the building. At least 38 cars were caught in the collapse.
The deck collapsed about lunchtime Monday in the busy commercial district of Midtown. More than 50 firefighters rushed to the scene and the bottom level was a "huge mess of vehicles and concrete," Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran said.
What caused the 7-year-old structure to collapse was not immediately known.
