Roof collapses in Poland: no injuries

A roof collapsed at an abandoned factory in southern Poland early Tuesday, authorities said. There were no reports of injuries.

The plant in the coal mining city of Zabrze was due to be torn down and nobody was believed to be inside, police spokesman Miroslaw Wolszczak said.

A section of the roof already caved in Jan. 26, causing no injuries.

On Jan. 28, the roof of an exhibition hall collapsed during a racing pigeon fair in the nearby city of Katowice, killing 63. Two people were still listed as missing. A thick layer of ice and snow on the roof was considered among the possible causes, reports the AP.
