A roof collapse in downtown Herndon forced several businesses to close over the weekend. According to the Herndon Police Department, the roof collapse happened on 764 Elden Street on Saturday (June 10).

Sully’s Pour House, an Irish pub, will remain closed until the issue, which owners described as a “sudden structural mishap,” is resolved. All other businesses in the building will also remain closed, according to a spokesperson for the police department.

“We are extremely grateful that not a single person was hurt during this,” the business wrote on Facebook.

No injuries were reported and the road has since reopened.

The town’s building official declared the building unsafe after inspecting it, a spokesperson for the town’s government told Reston Now.

Building owners are required to submit a plan to the town indicating how they will make the building safe, after which town officials will re-inspect the building, the spokesperson said.

This story will be updated.

    They were expecting the roof collapse?

    Looks like cheap 80s concrete facade tipped over. Would have been lethal. Very lucky!
