The heavy snowfall may have caused a huge section of a roof to collapse  at a popular banquet hall in Des Plaines.

A hole in the ceiling at Café la Cave measure about 30 feet by 50 feet.

The collapse happened just before 1 a.m. today.  Fortunately, no one was there at the time.

The collapse sheared off a pipe from the sprinkler system,  sending water into the building.

The city`s building and engineering departments are now working with the banquet hall’s owners to determine if other parts of the building are safe.
