According to Lake Dillon Fire Authority public information officer Rachel Hanson, the stores owner called the fire department just before 1 p.m. to report the incident.They heard a loud bang and something snapping, thats when they got out, Hanson said.The flat roof gave way in the rear portion of the store, landing on top of several hot tubs and outdoor grills that were for sale inside.The town of Frisco has condemned the store, which is located next to NAPA Auto Parts at the end of the Frisco Plaza mall, although the towns building inspector still needs to complete a thorough investigation, Hanson added.Hanson said the heavy snowload piled on top of the flat roof or the age of the building could have contributed to the collapse, but that the cause is still under investigation by the fire department.Firefighters put a barrier around the store, and Hanson urged people to be aware of the shops potential instability when theyre in the area.The walls are bowed in and are still making noises, she said.There are several indications its not done yet, that there could be a further collapse of the building, Hanson said.Nicole Formosa can be reached at (970) 668-3998 ext. 13625, or at nformosa@summitdaily.com
