A section of the roof of the building that houses XXX Adult Store collapsed into the street earlier this morning.

Vancouver Police and firefighters attended to the scene and closed off Helmcken Street, between Howe and Granville Streets, for a period. Granville Street has since reopened to traffic and transit buses.

The damage is limited to the exterior of the building and no injuries were reported. City engineers are investigating the cause of the collapse.
