Rubber Roof Ripped Off Building Downtown

A rubber roof blew off an apartment complex in downtown Knoxville.

Crews were called in Thursday night to the 1100 Studio Apartments on Lula Powell Drive for reports of a collapsed roof.

They found the rubber membrane and some metal flashing had blown off of two buildings. About 150 different units were affected.

No injuries were reported and officials don’t believe there is any structural damage.
