GIRARD, Ohio -

The Creekside Golf Dome in Girard collapses under the weight of heavy snow and ice from the weekend's weather storm and an internal water problem at the facility.  

"It's deflated, it's gone, you wouldn't know it is there," Jim Melfi said, Girard mayor.

The iconic sports complex off of North State Street collapsed at around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. No one was inside at the time.

Ohio Edison and Dominion Energy responded to the scene.

It is unknown when the dome will open again.

"Hopefully they get it up and running, but obviously weather has to cooperate,"Melfi said.

The building with golf simulators and a bar with remain open.
