Fort Bend County -

Heavy rains are being blamed for the roof collapse of a Texaco Food Mart on Dulles and Lexington in Sugar Land Saturday.

City officials say that the heavy rain in the short amount of time, was too much weight for the roof.

Store employees were able to leave just before the roof collapsed.

No one was hurt.
