Water Main Break Causes Rancho Cucamonga Theater’s Roof To Collapse

RANCHO CUCAMONGA (AP) — Dozens of moviegoers scrambled out of a Southern California theater before a water main break caused a roof collapse.

No one was hurt.

According to reports, Terra Vista theater managers told moviegoers to leave the Rancho Cucamonga building at about 8:30 p.m. Monday because water was leaking and the roof was starting to come down.

The roof eventually collapsed under the weight of the accumulated water.

Fire dispatch supervisor Sue Hood says firefighters were called in and the water main was shut down.
