REEDSVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

The roof of the Reedsville Fire Company station collapsed on Monday afternoon. Reports indicate a fire engine was leaving the station to respond to an emergency when a door opened, hitting the center wall.

Fire Chief Dan Aumiller says the roof came down moments after impact, adding that there were no injuries. 

A rescue truck and tanker remained trapped inside until Tuesday afternoon when excavation efforts were scheduled to begin, but the vehicles were removed by the evening.

The trucks suffered some damage, but they are still useable.

The Reedsville Fire Company is now back in service.
