    My daughter heard on the news that Taco Bell got out of that building awhile back because it was unsafe. The 911 was played and she said it was awful. I don't know how such a thing could happen when businesses are supposed to be inspected, or at least I hope so. Firefighters say that high winds could have contributed or the wet weather. If high winds around here did cause roofs to fall in, no one would have roofs.
