BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Officials say three people were injured by collapsing shelves at a South Florida party supply store.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue told The Palm Beach Post (https://goo.gl/Hph7dX ) that seven aisles collapsed Tuesday inside a Party City near Boca Raton. The three injured people were treated for minor injuries.

Special operations teams responded to the store to make sure no people were trapped underneath the shelves and merchandise. The sheriff’s office even brought in a K-9 unit to assist, but no additional victims were found.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the shelves to fall over.
