Roof Partially Collapses in East Falls Church Home

The roof of an East Falls Church house partially collapsed this afternoon (Friday), sending one construction worker to the hospital.

A construction crew was building an addition onto the back of a home on the 2400 block of N. Quantico Street when the roof of the addition collapsed, according to fire department personnel on the scene. The worker was transported to Virginia Hospital Center with minor injuries.

The residents of the house were not home when the roof collapsed, and the house, besides the addition, remains “structurally intact.” Inspectors were called to the scene to assess what caused the roof to cave in.
