The roof of the Church of the Las Esclavas school in Cádiz has collapsed. It happened around 7:30 a.m. this Thursday when the structure has expired and collapsed. Fortunately, it has not caused personal damage since the Church had been closed since last September 1, precisely because the deterioration of the building had been detected. The architects who had been supervising the state of the Church’s roof had recommended that some of the adjoining classes were moved, as was done by the school for security. However, when the roof gave way, the school still had no students inside because it was too early.▶️ The chapel was housed in a space attached to the school and they were carrying out revision work. It has a proportion of about 25/15 square meters. No personal injuries, although for prevention the rooms of the nuns have been evicted until the inspection is completed. pic.twitter.com/NarxpzmWlR— Cadiz Province Firefighters Consortium (@BomberosCbpc) September 22, 2022 As explained by the Provincial Firefighters Consortium, the Chapel, which is housed in a space attached to the school, has a proportion about 25/15 square meters. For prevention, the rooms of the nuns have been evicted until the inspection carried out by the firemen has been completed. Likewise, he has indicated that the fall of the roof has produced, in effect a whiplash, a break in the exterior wall that overlooks the avenue where it is located at the height of the affected pillar. For this reason, the firefighters have made a security perimeter in the 15 meters of the front due to the risk that the wall hits the ground and collapses. One of the options that are being negotiated with the municipal authorities is the location of a company for its demolition.
