BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. -- No one was injured after heavy snow was suspected of causing a roof collapse at a building followed by a gas leak on Wednesday night, the Breckenridge Police Department said.

No one was inside the building at the Ten Mile Room, which is part of the Village of Breckenridge in the 500 block of South Park Avenue, when the roof collapsed about 8:15 p.m.

The standalone building is used as a conference center and used to be a theater.

About 70 rooms from surrounding buildings were evacuated as a precaution as crews assessed the structural integrity of the snow-covered structures. Police said Breckenridge has received about 49 inches of snow in the past week.

Crews from several agencies responded to the collapse.

Park Avenue between Four o'clock Road and South Main Street were closed as crews from multiple agencies assessed the damage.
