Saturday, Officers from the Polson Police Department responded to a fire alarm at the Linderman Elementary School.
According to the police department, while en-route dispatch was receiving reports from witnesses explaining that the roof above the gymnasium partially collapsed, but there was no fire. The damaged roof tripped the alarm.
Arriving first responders discovered the roof had partially collapsed on the south west side of the school, directly above the gym and locker room area.
Nobody was inside at the time and no one was hurt.
The integrity of the remaining roof is unstable at this time.
The area surrounding the school is roped off and citizens are urged to stay away.
An update from the school released Jan. 7 says that school administrators first noticed potential structural issues on Jan. 1, and had already canceled activities in the gym for safety reasons. Due to plumbing and electrical damage, the school gym, locker rooms, music room and library are closed for the "foreseeable future."
