A party came to an abrupt end Sunday morning in Texas after the floor full of party-goers collapsed underneath them into the apartment below. About 50 people were packed inside for a UNT Homecoming after party jumping up and down and dancing when BOOM!

No word if "structural issues" at The Ridge Apartments on Colorado Blvd. are actually to blame.

CBS DFW said the nightmare for students began at around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when the Denton Fire Departments responded to a report of a fire alarm.

Officials said no major injuries were reported, but a few people were treated for minor injuries on the scene, according to NBC 5.

Denton firefighters believe the cause of the collapse was too much jumping.

In video posted to Twitter after the incident, partygoers can be seen crawling through the rubble of the collapse, trying to get back to the third floor as fire sprinklers go off.

"TV's, computers, just everything", Carroll told WFAA.

A video shows the moments after the floor of a Texas apartment collapsed. "We haven't even lived here three months, and everything we have is gone and destroyed".

Carroll says it isn't the first time she's called the cops on the apartment above.

"We've called and said, 'It looks like the ceiling is going to cave in, ' so I feel like with us saying that, there could've been more that was done", she said.

The Ridge at North Texas is a student- only apartment complex, owned privately and not by UNT.

Denton police tell NBC 5 that they never received any 911 calls to complain about the noise before the collapse.

The party's host, Abiola Busari, said he will be staying with some friends.
