Drifting snow is being blamed for partially collapsing the roof of a central Indiana business.

The roof collapsed in a service bay of Edmundson RV along U.S. 31 in Edinburgh during Wednesday's winter storm that dumped about a foot of snow in the area about 25 miles south of Indianapolis.

Edinburgh Police Chief David Mann says no one was inside the building at the time.

Edmundson RV manager Rudy Hampton tells The Republic the bay was used for storage and that three vehicles inside were damaged.

Hampton says the business also had a broken water main that caused damage and that he didn't yet have an estimate on repair costs.
