Building owner won't be charged after roof collapse

07/9/2010 | Star Tribune (Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.)

The owner of a 100-year-old St. Paul, Minn., apartment building won't be charged after its roof collapsed while being repaired, because he didn't violate any existing city ordinances. Inspectors could not get into the building to pinpoint the reason for the collapse, but it could have been caused by the weight of the roof, stress from workers and a pile of shingles atop the roof at the time or overall deterioration. No one was injured, but 17 residents were displaced.
