BEND, OR -- The weight of snow and rain continues to cause problems for buildings across the High Desert. The roof collapsed at the vacant Ray’s Food Place on Century Drive, Wednesday morning. There were reports of smaller collapses from Sisters to Prineville, as well.
Bend Fire says no one was inside the Ray’s when two-thirds of the roof collapsed. Firefighters checked to make sure there was no danger to life or imminent secondary collapse, then turned the site over to the property management firm.
The Bend Ray’s closed in early 2014 when its parent company filed for bankruptcy.
