NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A New Haven company fell victim to Wednesday’s heavy snow melt.
Part of the roof collapsed at the A. Thompson-Allen Company on Welton Street around 3:30 p.m.
The fire department says they expect to see more of this as the winter wraps up.
“It appears that in the middle portion of the building behind me we had a partial building collapse of the roof and the rear wall, probably due to the snow load,” said New Haven Assistant Fire Chief Matthew Marcarelli. “We’re probably going to be seeing a lot of that if the weather keeps up the way it is.”
Only two workers were in the building at the time. They were not hurt.
