FAYETTE, Mo. - Heavy snow has apparently caused the partial collapse of some buildings in a central Missouri town and led to the closure of a state highway.
The Missouri Department of Transportation said Tuesday night that it has shut down a stretch of Missouri Route 240 in Fayette after debris spilled on it. The department said the second story of a building fell down, and the roof of an adjacent building also collapsed.
The department said the building failures apparently were caused by heavy snow.
No injuries were reported.
