(Lancaster) -- A portion of the roof at a Lancaster County TV station has collapsed, forcing the staff to evacuate.

WGAL reports  the roof over an unused studio collapsed this afternoon in Lancaster.

Fire officials ordered about 100 people in the newsroom to evacuate, but there were no reports of injuries.

The station reports that a concrete support beam shifted and dropped. It's unclear when staff will be allowed back in the building.
