THE BRONX - The CVS on Burke Avenue has been torn down following last week's roof collapse.

The FDNY says heavy ice and snow on the roof weighed it down, causing the collapse. The roof caving in also broke the building's sprinkler system, sending water flowing out onto the sidewalk.

All employees and customers inside the Burke Avenue pharmacy made it out safely and no injuries were reported.
