Section Of Roof Collapses At Glenbrook Square

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Crews are working to clean up quite the mess at Glenbrook Square after a section of the roof collapsed sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

The roof over the walkway between Sears and T.G.I. Friday's collapsed. It has not been made clear what caused the roof to collapse but there is a significant amount of snow and ice accumulation on that area of the roof.

Mall management released the following statement:

"Tuesday, February 18, 2014 Glenbrook Square suffered a roof failure on a small portion outside of Sears with no injuries. Glenbrook did open for business at regular time with only that small section closed to traffic. The affected stores are TGI Fridays, River City Harley Davidson and one of the Auntie Anne’s Pretzels locations.

We have been working since 2 a.m. to get the area cleaned up and are preparing to repair damaged areas as well as taking precautions to prevent damage to other areas. Glenbrook will continue to operate normally during this time as the tenant, employee, shoppers and workers safety is our #1 priority. We only anticipate the few aforementioned stores’ to be affected."

In November, during holiday shopping season a water main break left many stores closed temporarily. In September, the mall was evacuated after a fire broke out in a storage room near JCPenney.
