Strong winds tear off wall of Mt. Morris Township business

This is the back of the Family Dollar Store along Pierson Road in Mt. Morris Township.

Strong winds are responsible for ripping off part of the roof and tearing out the rear wall of a Mt. Morris Township business.

Mt. Morris Township fire officials say winds caught the roof and tore off the rear of the Family Dollar Store located along Pierson Road.

It happened Sunday evening.

The fire captain lives nearby and was able to respond quickly.

The building is newly-renovated so there were no items inside the building.
