A woman was injured Wednesday afternoon when a roof collapsed on her in a DeKalb County grocery store.

The incident happened at the Food Depot in the 3500 block of Panola Road, according to DeKalb fire spokesman Capt. Dion Bentley.

The employee was in a storage room when the roof of the structure fell and trapped her inside, Bentley said. The grocery store’s external roof was intact, he said.

The woman was rescued from the debris and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Bentley said.
