PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The roof of an apartment building in Philadelphia has caved in but authorities say no injuries are reported.

Emergency responders reported to the five-story building in North Philadelphia just after 2 p.m.

The collapse left bricks scattered across the road.

Executive Fire Chief Clifford Gilliam says firefighters removed one person from the third floor, but no one was injured.

The collapse came after several inches of snow had fallen in the city. But the fire chief says it’s unclear if the roof gave way due to the snow.
