HAVRE, Mont. — A vacant building in the northern Montana town of Harlem collapsed over the weekend, spilling bricks into the street.

Harlem Volunteer Fire Chief Robert Scheffelmaer tells the Havre Daily News the building that previously housed a grocery store likely collapsed Saturday due to the weight of snow on the roof.

Scheffelmaer said Monday that no one was inside and no injuries were reported.

The building once housed a Buttrey grocery store.
