Roof collapses at Ga. senior center

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County officials say residents of a senior living center escaped injury when a roof collapsed over a dining area.

Fire Department spokesman Capt. Thomas Rutledge says all 109 residents of Golden Living Center were temporarily evacuated when the roof collapsed Thursday morning.

Rutledge says no one was in the dining area at the time and no injuries are reported. He says firefighters are working with city inspectors and contractors to assess the damage to the dining and kitchen areas of the building.

The cause remains under investigation.
