QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — Emergency management officials are reporting the partial collapses of at least three snow-laden roofs on buildings in southeastern Massachusetts.

No injuries have been reported.

Quincy police said a former set of “The Finest Hours” — a Disney film about a Coast Guard rescue of crewmen aboard an oil tanker wrecked off Cape Cod during a 1952 blizzard — suffered a partial collapse. The movie starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck is scheduled to open next year.

A commercial building in Rockland also gave way under the weight of snow on Monday. New England Cable News reported there were eight people inside the building at the time but all got out safely.

A third partial building collapse was reported in Bridgewater as the latest snow storm clobbered the region.
