ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) – The roof of a southwest Oklahoma building more than 100 years old came crashing down after water pooled on its roof.

The Anadarko Fire Department says the downtown building crumbled on Thursday, following a series of storms in the region. The roof collapse also crushed a section of the building’s wall.

No injuries were reported.

The vacant building once housed a furniture company and was used as a warehouse until a 2009 tornado damaged it. The building was never repaired and has been vacant since.
