Heavy Snow Claims Roof of KC-MO Pawn Shop

The weight of two- 12-inch snowfalls over the past two weeks was too much for the roof of a longtime Kansas City business early Sunday.

Fire- utility and city crews were called to the Golden Nugget pawn shop at 7423 Troost around 4 am Sunday morning on the report of "a gas leak."

When the fire companies arrived- they found that the roof of the business had collapsed.

No one was inside the building when the roof came down- and crews were able to shut off the natural gas leak without incident.

The city's dangerous buildings department were handling the end result of this incident.

I remember when that building was Gain Hardware. My father and I used to go in there when I was a tyke.
