West Bend fire crews respond to collapsed ceiling at apartment

WEST BEND (WITI) -- West Bend fire officials responded to a ceiling collapse early Thursday morning, April 18th.

It happened on Eastern Ave. in West Bend.

Officials discovered the living room ceiling of a unit in the apartment complex had collapsed. The collapse was due to a leak in the corner of the complex's roof, which then seeped onto the ceiling and caused it to collapse.

The collapse forced six units in the apartment complex to be evacuated in the 16-unit complex.

The complex's owner says the roof needs to be replaced before tenants are allowed back in.
