Heavy Snow collapses Hambden Gym Roof- Geauga County Maple Leaf 12/13/16
Tue. Jan 10th 2017

No one was injured after a roof collapsed Monday at Hambden Health & Fitness Center in Hambden Township.

The roof collapsed around 6 a.m. from the weight of snow combined with rain Sunday night, Hambden Township Fire Captain Dave Peterson said.

Peterson said there was about three feet of snow on the roof when emergency responders arrived on scene.

One person was inside the building, located in Hambden Plaza, 13940 GAR Highway, minutes prior to the collapse, Peterson said.

The man had finished working out and heard “popping and cracking” in the ceiling as he was leaving the gym, Peterson said, adding the man called the gym owner to report what he had heard.

Montville and Chardon fire departments assisted at the scene, the captain said, helping to search inside the gym to confirm nobody was trapped under the snow and debris.

In addition, Peterson said the Geauga County Building Department was on site and a structural engineer inspected the other suites to determine there were no structural issues.
