MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis Code Enforcement and county code went to the Peppertree Apartments on Wednesday morning, and issued a notice of violation for the damaged breezeways.

They have 14 days to fix it, but if not the city will take them to court.

On Tuesday, a walkway that goes from one building to another collapsed injuring two people in Peppertree Apartments.

Memphis Fire Department lieutenant said the walkway is about two stories high.

The lieutenant said they aren’t sure what caused the collapse, but code enforcement should be investigating the cause.
