Heavy Snow Collapses Roof of Three Buildings in Jackson
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Heavy snow in a western Wyoming town has caused a roof to collapse, forcing the evacuation and closure of three businesses.
The roof was shared by a Sears store, gymnastics facility and bowling alley in Jackson. It collapsed under the weight of the snow Monday night.
Fire officials say no one was injured.
The owner of the bowling alley says about 50 people were inside when the roof railed. Employees of Axis Gymnastics and Sports Academy say they were hosting an after-school program and about 30 children were inside when the roof started to buckle.
Engineers are evaluating the damage.
