Muskegon officials examine auditorium's collapsed roof
(2008-01-24)
(wgvu) - MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - Two city building officials used a
103-foot aerial fire truck to get a bird's-eye view of the damage
after part of an auditorium's roof collapsed.
But they say it will be up to a structural engineer to figure
out what happened.
The Muskegon Chronicle says the collapse occurred sometime
Monday night or Tuesday morning when no one was in Jones
Auditorium.
Bingo games are held three nights a week inside the
10,000-square-foot building.
Muskegon received several inches of snow on the night of the
collapse, but building owner Scott Jones says there was little snow
on the roof when it came down.
The auditorium was built in the late 1990s.
