At approximately 9:30 p.m. last night, the roof on unoccupied building on the corner of Cole St. and Stevenson Ave. in Enumclaw collapsed, causing structural damage to the north and south walls.

The city has put up caution tape around the building, closing the corner to vehicles and encouraging residents to walk around the structure.

It is unknown how much danger the building poses to the surrounding area.

City Administrator Chris said the city had hired a structural engineer to examine the building later today.
