Structural Collapse Closes Downtown Businesses, Part of Chadbourne
SAN ANGELO, TX-- A roof collapse at the popular Fuentes Downtown Cafe and The Man Shop on Chadbourne has halted business.
Emergency personnel responded to the collapse mid-morning on Sunday. There has been no word on injuries or the cause of the collapse.
John Fuentes, owner of Fuentes Downtown Cafe said he and his staff were cooking food for a meeting with the City of San Angelo at the time of the collapse.
“We heard a loud boom,” Fuentes said. “Next thing we know, we see smoke coming out of the front dining room and we noticed the wall had collapsed.”
The Man Shop also suffered damage to their wall, which connects to Fuentes.
Both businesses will have to remain closed until they can make repairs.
The two southbound lanes of Chadbourne will remained closed as crews assess the damage, according to fire inspector Brent Donaho.
