A valley family reached out to 13 Action News after the roof of their apartment near Hacienda and Swenson collapsed on Saturday.

Valerie Duklis said it started slowly with a bit of water dripping from the ceiling.  A few hours later, the family heard a big crash.

"Like a tub coming through the bottom floor," said Duklis.

Duklis said the mess is the result of a water heater bursting in the upstairs unit.

Right now, the electricity in her apartment is turned off as a safety precaution.

"What am I to do?" she said, "...I'm on a fixed income."

Late Monday night, 13 Action News attempted to reach the owner of the unit.

We will reach out to him again Tuesday morning.

Check back soon for updates.
