Roof collapse causes gas leak in Vail

VAIL, Colorado ” About 25 people were evacuated from an East Vail condo complex Thursday night after a roof collapse caused a gas leak.

The collapse happened at the Windstream Condominiums on Columbine Drive in East Vail at about 9:21 p.m.

The falling roof hit gas meters, causing the leak, Vail officials said.

Vail firefighters were unable to shut off the gas, and Xcel Energy was coming from Silverthorne late Thursday to shut it off.

Residents were evacuated via Vail buses. No injuries were reported.
