Erie firefighters investigated the scene at 1248 W. 17th St. Friday after a 30-foot-by-40-foot section of the metal roof collapsed under the weight of snow, according to Erie Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Carroll.

The company's owner was inside the building at the time the roof collapsed around 9:08 p.m. but was thankfully uninjured by the collapse. "The trusses let go," Carroll explained.

"The trusses are all in. The owner was in there at the time and he heard it. He’s been working here, and he’s been cleaning other people’s roofs from the weight of the snow and his own let go," Carroll said.

The building's roof collapsed onto a couple vehicles and some equipment but no injuries occurred.
