Roof Collapses as CT Firefighters Clear It

Firefighters were trying to clear the roof of a Hebron (CT) home when it collapsed beneath them.

Hebron (CT) firefighters were called to structure after the homeowner heard creaking and saw a crack in the ceiling, according to a report on wtnh.com.

Fortunately no one was inside the structure during the collapse and those on the roof slid down safely with the snow.
