Snow has damaged the roof at a historical Duluth building.

A partial roof collapse at the Historic Duluth Armory caused some problems this weekend. Crews were out Monday analyzing the damage.

They said the 20-foot collapse was at the center of the roof. It's just another example of how snowy this winter has been.

"It's been unusual in terms of the amount of snow we've had and the weather we've had," Assistant Fire Chief Bryan Bushey said. "We had the Greysolon Plaza and there was an issue at the service station. We had this. There was an issue at the mall. There's been a few issues with heavy snow."

City officials said the owners will need to do a structural review before people can go inside.

The Armory Arts and Music Center President said they started repairs on the roof last fall and were planning on doing more this spring. Damage is estimated at $50,000 to $75,000.
