SOMERVILLE - Heavy snow and ice has leveled a roof in Somerville.

Fire crews responded to a warehouse along East Main Street Monday and discovered the ceiling caved in.

Chief Bob Lynn says that with more snow on the way, the bad problem only appears to be getting worse.

"This is our second one in a couple of days, so it's pretty common apparently," Lynn says.

The building was empty at the time of the collapse.
