The collapse happened at the location along Patterson Avenue just south of 36th Street in Kentwood.

A company spokesperson tells FOX17 no one was hurt, and third shift employees at that building do not have to report to work tonight during the clean-up and damage assessment.

According to the fire chief on scene, the collapse was due to a heavy snow load on the roof.  It broke the sprinkler lines, which sounded an alarm.
