The roofing of an aged storage structure collapsed in Roy Thursday morning, and firefighters said it was likely that failure to keep snow and ice cleared was partly the cause.
Roy Deputy Fire Chief Jeff Comeau said six storage units were destroyed and two more sustained damage when the roofing failed about 8:25 a.m. The storage structure, at 2783 W. 5500 South, serves residents of nearby condominiums and apartments.
Some of the units contained cars, trailers and boats as well as other valuables. Damage and loss estimates were being assessed late Thursday.
