(WBIR) Crews responded Saturday night to a partial roof collapse at an Anderson County packaging company.

Andersonville fire officials said it happened around 7:45 p.m. at Pharma Packaging Solutions on First Quality Drive in Norris.

Seven people were inside at the time, but four made it out on their own. Emergency crews quickly helped the other three

A small gas leak happened during the collapse, but it was quickly contained.

Chief Kennedy said structural engineers believe the collapse happened because of ice buildup on the flat roof. He suggests other homes and businesses be aware of the danger of snow buildup.
