Roof Collapse at Burney Ben Franklin store
BURNEY, Calif. -

Northstate residents are cleaning up after the winter storm that slammed the area on Friday.  The roof of the Ben Franklin store in Burney collapsed under the weight for more than three feet of snow mixed with rain that fell on the mountain community over the last two days.

Burney is 54 miles east of Redding on Highway 299.  Many residents are unable to leave their homes because they are snowed in.
