VANCOUVER – The operators of an Adult Entertainment Store will be busy cleaning up today after a section of the store’s roof came toppling down early Thursday morning.

Vancouver Firefighters were called to the scene around 3:30 a.m. after some bricks and other building material fell into the street.

The store is located on Helmcken Street, between Granville and Howe, and traffic was temporarily diverted as crews dealt with some live wires that were caught up in the collapse.

No one was injured in the incident and the Vancouver Police say the cause of the collapse is being investigated by city engineers.

Helmcken Street and the west lane of Granville remains closed as crews remove debris.
