St. Joseph, MO (2010-07-23) The mystery remains into what caused massive bookshelves to domino and collapse at Missouri Western Wednesday afternoon.
Officials there say it might be next week before a cause is found, but intentional activity is not expected.
About 8 library shelf sets in Hearne's Hall began falling into one another... collapsing and spilling books into a pile about 4 feet deep.
Missouri Western spokesman Kent Hire says emergency responders were called.... not knowing if any library patrons were trapped.
It turned out there wasn't anyone trapped, and no injuries were reported.
School officials say insurance adjusters may eventually help in determining the cause.
