HOOKSETT, N.H. — Firefighters say the roof at an apartment complex in Hooksett, New Hampshire, has partially collapsed, and about 60 people have been evacuated.

The collapse happened at a condo complex shortly after 4 a.m. Monday. No injuries have been reported.

Fire Chief Mike Williams tells WMUR-TV one of the main beams that supports the roof collapsed right in the center. He said it looks like parts of the roof are sitting on the attic floor.

Also Monday, a Wal-Mart store in Seabrook evacuated because of concerns over snow on the roof and a wall problem.

Fire Chief Bill Edwards said a store employee heard a loud bang just before 9 a.m. He said a concrete slab used for walls in the back of the store had come undone.
