Officials searching building after roof collapses in Trois-Rivières – Montreal


Officials are searching the wreck of a heavily damaged building in Trois-Rivieres, Que., to ensure nobody is trapped inside.

Fire department spokesman Dany Cloutier says there are unconfirmed reports that a person might have been inside the commercial building when the roof caved in just after 1 p.m. today.

A team of technical specialists from the Montreal fire department is also en route to verify the site is safe before anyone ventures further under the wreckage.
