Three people were hurt when a deck with about 20 people on it collapsed last night in Walpole, a fire official said. Fire Lieutenant Paul Carter said the collapse of the 20-by-40-foot deck occurred at about 9:20 p.m. on the second floor of a raised ranch home on Hitching Post Drive. Carter said the three victims were taken to Norwood Hospital with injuries not thought to be life-threatening. He said the cause of the collapse was under investigation and that firefighters and a town building inspector were still at the site about an hour after the incident.
