Fred Meyer stores in Bountiful and Taylorsville were temporarily closed, and stores from Logan to Spanish Fork and in Idaho were inspected Tuesday and Wednesday to avoid another winter-related accident.

Company officials are looking for a possible "link" to other incidents of roof failure during the past 7-10 years in buildings now leased by Fred Meyer Inc.Monday's roof collapse in a Salt Lake store, they say, is a repeat performance.

It was about 11 a.m. when a 175-by-75-foot section of the flat roof over Fred Meyer's store at 3215 S. 33rd East collapsed under the weight of nearly 2 feet of snow.
