LAKE DELTON - Crews are working Thursday to clean up damage from a roof collapse at a Walmart in Lake Delton.

According to Sgt. William Hitchcock, the collapse happened in the loading dock area just after 5 p.m. Wednesday.

“It appears that water buildup on the roof made the roof collapse,” Hitchcock said. “We had a very, very strong downpour of rain just prior.”

Hitchcock said there were no serious injuries reported, and the Walmart had been closed for the night after the collapse, for safety reasons. It will most likely be closes Thursday as well.
