AWNING COLLAPSE IN JAMESTOWN

WDAY received photos of an awning collapse sent to our newsroom from a viewer.

It's right near the Salvation Army building, in downtown Jamestown. We called and spoke to Jamestown police this morning. They believe just the awning part collapsed, with nothing actually entering the building itself. It happened just before 4:00 yesterday. There are no known injuries.

ROOF COLLAPSE AT FARGO APARTMENT COMPLEX

An apartment complex in Fargo is bringing out a crew to clean up, after its roof collapsed because of snow.

It happened at Park Downs apartment garages on 11th Ave. S. Fire fighters said all garages had some damage. No injuries were reported at the time of the collapse. Fargo fire fighters said it's about the 13th roof incident they've responded to in recent weeks.

TWO PEOPLE TRAPPED AFTER ROOF COLLAPSE

This morning two people are safe after being trapped for a short time in a building that had it's second roof collapse in just five days.

Most of the roof at R.J. Corman Railroad in West Fargo is gone, except for a portion on each end, but a chunk on the south side is the big issue. A piece is flapping in the wind. Crews said that could come off at any minute and go flying, obviously creating a major safety concern, especially with Main Ave. just a few hundred feet away.

PERSON RETURNS HOME AFTER ROOF SAVED FROM COLLAPSE

One person living in a Fargo apartment is now back in their home, after their ceiling almost collapsed because of heavy snow.

Fargo fire crews started shoveling snow off the roof of Greving Apartments around 6:30 yesterday morning. They tell us the one person living in the unit wasn't allowed back in for a couple hours, until broken rafters were fixed.
