Nobody was hurt when the inflatable roof covering tennis courts in Lincoln collapsed Thursday afternoon.

Fire & Rescue Assistant Chief Pat Borer said the cause of the collapse at the Ethel S. Abbott Sports Complex near North 70th Street and Arbor Road is under investigation. He said the balloon-like structure encompassed 80,000 square feet.

A staffer said she heard a loud pop before seeing the bubble collapse minutes before tennis teams were scheduled to practice.
