Partial roof collapse at Ocean City hotel

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Fire officials were called for the report of a partial roof collapse at an Ocean City hotel.

It happened Sunday afternoon at the Bellview Hotel at 8th Street and Ocean Avenue.

Arriving crews found that the walls were buckling. An investigation revealed that a couple thousand gallons of water on the roof is what caused the partial collapse.

Police say several roads in the area will be closed until inspectors can evaluate the building on Monday.

No one was inside as the time as the hotel is closed for the season.
