SPOKANE, Wash. – Two people were taken to a Spokane area hospital after a carport collapsed on them Wednesday afternoon. One person was trapped between a car and the collapsed roof until he was rescued by the Spokane Fire Department.

Wet, heavy snow is being blamed on the collapse that happened in the 700 block of East Rowan in North Spokane.

The fire department supported the collapsed roof long enough to remove the car from the carport late Wednesday afternoon.
