CRAB ORCHARD - The demolition of a neighboring building collapsed a store roof Monday afternoon when part of a outer wall fell on it.
Danny Saylor, owner of Saylor Mart, said the wall of the adjacent building fell outward, onto the store roof, creating a gaping hole and narrowly missing a customer.
"There was a two story building here beside our store, ... and somehow a wall fell on our roof, instead of falling in," said Saylor.
The neighboring vacant building had been damaged by fire in March, when the adjacent Crab Orchard Springs Cafe burned. At the time, firefighters speculated that both the vacant building and the cafe would have to be torn down.
