Building collapses at CRC Conference Grounds

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) -- Heavy snow is to blame for the collapse of a roof in Ottawa County over the weekend. It happened Sunday night at the Christian Reformed Conference Grounds.

The entire roof of the multi-use auditorium building collapsed. The church holds concerts in the building, and raises funds by storing RVs there during the winter. There were 40 vehicles inside the building when the roof collapsed.

"We had somebody that had gone up to look at the ice and it was a sunny day. When they drove in the building was standing, and when they were driving out they saw that it had fallen in and collapsed," said CRC Conference Grounds director Mike Perton.

No one was hurt in the collapse. The building was going to be used as early as May. Leaders from the conference grounds gathered Monday to pray about what to do next.
