Rain Likely Cause of Appleton Roof Collapse

CREATED Jul. 8, 2013

APPLETON, Wis. -- The National Weather Service office in Green Bay reports Appleton received more than 2 inches of rain early Monday. That rain appears to be the likely cause of a roof collapse on the 800 block of College Avenue.

Police were called to Sign Works around 9:00 am for a call of a roof collapse. One person was in the building, but was able to escape. No injuries were reported.

The Appleton Fire Department closed that section of College Avenue to check the nearby buildings. The road has reopened.
