SPRING TWP., Pa. -

The weight of the heavy snow brought down an abandoned roller skating rink in Berks County.

The collapse was reported around 11 a.m. Friday at the Starlight Skating Rink, 520 Vinemont Rd., in Spring Twp., Berks Co.

Children were playing nearby when they heard the building come crashing down, police said. No one was close enough to be injured.

The rink, police said, appears to have been closed for a number of years.
