WORCESTER (CBS) – A gas station in Worcester has been shut down after a canopy collapsed under the weight of heavy snow.

Fortunately, no one was pumping gas at the Shell station on Lincoln Street when the roof above the pumps fell apart around 9 p.m. Sunday.

WBZ-TV’s Ron Sanders reports

There was a foot and a half of frozen snow on the canopy before it collapsed.

The fire department closed the station until the cleanup and repairs are finished.
