MAINE (WBNG) -- Emergency crews have responded to the Greater Binghamton Sports Complex on Airport Road in the Town of Maine after its roof collapsed Sunday afternoon.

This is the second time the roof collapsed at the complex in one year. It collapsed in December 2020 after a massive snowfall. The first collapse occurred to a separate unit, which was an air-supported dome.

In September, the complex posted on its Facebook page that is expected to be to be operational shortly after the building was delivered. The post was made after the work on the foundation was completed.

REBUILD UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out about our progress with the rebuild. We are SO excited...

Fire officials said there are no injuries.
