Snow build-up leads to roof collapse in Elkhart County


The owner of a large private storage building wants everyone to be alert about weighty snow after his roof collapsed Wednesday.  The collapse happened around noon along State Road 120 near County Road 17 in Elkhart County.

Tim Keech, the owner of the building, says a roof collapse like this could happen to anyone.  Keech says he checked his roof about a half-hour before the collapse, but didn't think it looked bad.  He's just happy that no one got hurt in the incident.
