More falling glass issues have led to the closure of the Centennial Botanical Conservatory.

According to a city news release, it was discovered Friday afternoon that a malfunctioning roof vent resulted in several glass panels breaking with shards falling from the ceiling into a safety net in the Tropical House viewing area.

There were no injuries as a result and the cause is currently unknown.

The conservatory is expected to re-open early next week.

The facility had previously re-opened in February after being closed for nearly a year due to concerns about falling glass.

The city had spent $76,000 to install a safety net to protect against falling glass.
