      Roof collapses at empty building after snow


      Police in suburban Detroit say heavy snow is believed to have caused the roof to collapse at a two-story building that once housed a bar.


      No injuries are reported.


      Police say no one was inside the former Wagon Wheel bar in Lake Orion about 7 p.m. Sunday at the time of the collapse. Officer David Presnell tells the Detroit Free Press that a nearby roadway was closed in case the rest of the building comes down.


      Presnell says the building was to be renovated in the spring. About a foot of snow had fallen on the area by the time the roof collapsed.
