Roof collapses on building housing Alaska fitness center
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) – A building housing an Alaska fitness studio partially collapsed and fire officials say heavy snow may be the reason.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports an instructor for F&H Fitness reported to work Thursday, heard suspicious noises from the roof and exited.
The building has a one-story section and a two-story section. The instructor was sitting in her car with a second instructor when the roof on the one-story section caved in.
Marketing manager Stephanie Woodward says the fitness center conducts classes with up to 45 people at a time. She says company officials are extremely thankful no one was inside.
The two-story section housing a cycling room remains intact.
University Fire Department Battalion Chief Pat Mead says it’s possible snow load played a role in the collapse.
