No Injuries After a Gaithersburg HomeGoods’ Roof Partially Collapses

A HomeGoods store in Gaithersburg, located on Quince Orchard Road, has been deemed “unsafe to occupy” by a building inspector after its roof partially collapsed Wednesday afternoon.

Pete Piringer, the spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services, tweeted that the roof probably collapsed due to an accumulation of water.

When the roof collapsed, Piringer tweeted that people evacuated the building and no one was injured.

It’s unclear how much the damages will cost to repair.
