LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- WHAS11 has learned roofers laid new shingles and the weight of those shingles caused the cave-in of a roof at a building on the 1300 block of S. Fourth Street.

Everyone was evacuated from the building which is used as separate apartments.

No one was injured.

Firefighters told the people who live in this building to leave - until it's deemed safe.

The Red Cross is helping 13 people who have now been displaced
