    Investigators are looking into a roof collapse at a Williamsburg business Sunday.

    No one was hurt in the incident, which occurred in the overnight hours at the Mr. Dollar store at 169 Graham Ave.

    It wasn't clear whether the heavy rain played a role in the roof collapse, though the water was still coming in steadily through the opening of the roof as the day went on.

    Merchandise from inside the store were littered across the front of the store, including soda bottles and detergent bottles.
