February 6, 2015

A northeast Ohio gas station closed overnight after snow caused its canopy to collapse.

WKYC-TV reports the canopy of Prime Stations in the Cleveland suburb of Maple Heights collapsed Wednesday evening under the weight of wet snow.

One vehicle was hit in the collapse. Police say no one was seriously injured.

Emergency crews shut off the gas pumps and disconnected electrical lines at the station.

A winter storm dumped up to a foot of snow in parts of northern Ohio at the beginning of the week, sparking school closings and county snow emergencies.

Crews planned to begin cleanup at the gas station Thursday morning.
