FDNY Responds to Building Roof Collapse in Williamsburg

The Department of Building placed a vacate order on the building.

A portion of a roof collapsed Sunday afternoon on Roebling Street between Metropolitan Avenue and Hope Street. The FDNY says the parapet wall collapsed at around 4:40pm, which caused the partial collapse. About 25 units responded to the scene.

Store owner Colm Dillane said he was outside and saw it all happen right before his eyes. Click here to read more on
