TUCKER, Ga. (AP) — Building inspectors and authorities in metro Atlanta are trying to determine what cause a 100-foot awning to collapse at a McDonald's restaurant.
WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1bslkmt ) the section of the roof hanging over the restaurant's entrances crashed to the ground Tuesday. DeKalb County Fire Chief Edward O'Brien says no injuries were reported and no vehicles were damaged.
O'Brien says it's fortunate no one was standing beneath the awning when it collapsed because "it's a very heavy section."
Authorities say they're not sure what caused the awning to fall at the restaurant in Tucker, about 15 miles northeast of Atlanta. Building inspectors have been called in to assist investigators. The restaurant is expected to be closed for a while for further investigation and repairs.
