Roof Collapses on Rockford Church

No one inside or hurt at New Fellowship Baptist Church on 2nd Avenue.

ROCKFORD - Shortly after 11 a.m. Tuesday morning, a roof partially collapsed on a former Rockford church.

Rockford Fire says there was no one inside the building at the time, and no one was hurt. It happened at the now vacant New Fellowship Baptist Church on 2nd Avenue. The building had been previously condemned due to unsafe conditions.

City officials say they're blocking off the area of 2nd Avenue and 4th Street to let the old church completely collapse on its own.
