Firefighters are responding to a partial roof collapse at a building on a church property on 14905 New Hampshire Ave. in Silver Spring.

According to Montgomery County Fires and Rescue Services spokesperson Pete Piringer, the building located on Shiloh Christian Fellowship Church property suffered “almost total destruction” due to the weight of heavy snow on the roof.

Piringer says the building  was unoccupied and no one was injured. The building inspector has been notified.
