WEST CONCORD, Minn. - Damage totals are being assessed after the roof on a former auto dealership in southeastern Minnesota collapsed Thursday morning.  

It Happened in downtown West Concord, a community just off Highway 56 in Dodge County.

Images from SKY 11 show at least half of the building's roof caved in, and roof panels and walls sagging under the weight of what the National Weather Service says is more than a foot of heavy, wet spring snow.  

Law enforcement officials say the collapse was almost certainly caused by the unseasonable spring storm.

The building, a former Jeep dealership, now serves as a facility used to store boats, cars, and other recreational vehicles. At this point there is no estimate on the damage to the structure and the vehicles being stored inside.
