    The 600-square-foot collapse appeared to be weather related but the cause is still under investigation, officials said at the scene.

    "We believe at this point it was weather-related, but we're still investigating," Fire Capt. Chris Cooper said.

    The Bay Area is seeing rain for the first time in six months, and North Bay was forecast to receive the most rain, which started Monday evening.

    Firefighters responded around 7 a.m. to a fire alarm at the store.

    Building safety inspectors and fire department personnel are still at the scene this morning. The store is closed until further notice, according to officials.
