INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –A popular downtown restaurant and bar was evacuated Saturday afternoon after its roof collapsed.

It happened around 3 p.m. at The Eagle at 310 Massachusetts Avenue.

Authorities on scene said the collapse was caused by frozen pipes on the building’s roof that had backed up.

There were no reported injuries during the incident.

In a Facebook post, the restaurant said the roof was an addition to the building and completely independent of the main building. The main restaurant would reopen in 24 to 48 hours after some cleanup. The exterior bar will take “some time” to get up and running.

“We appreciate everyone’s understanding and concern,” the Facebook post read. “We’d like to apologize to our guests for the inconvenience, and we thank our incredible team and the amazing responders from the city of Indianapolis for their help and support. We’ll be back up and running soon!”

The restaurant took to Twitter to announce that they’d quickly reopen at 4 p.m. Sunday.
