A building that collapsed in Corning about six weeks ago due to heavy snow build-up collapsed even further on Sunday night. Corning Fire Chief Donnie Willett says the incident occurred at a car dealership, Miller Chevrolet. Chief Willett says a section on the east end of the building caved in and he says crews haven’t been able to get inside the structure to assess the damage.
He says the owner is in Florida on vacation and had been using the building as storage. Willett says the building was still full of cars and other inventory. No injuries were reported. The building’s roof was heavily laden with anywhere from two-to-three feet of snow when the original collapse occurred.
