Middletown fire officials say they believe the roof gave way during Tuesday’s winter storm. They didn’t find out about it until Wednesday, when a person out for a walk noticed it and called police.
It’s unclear at this time if the wintry conditions played a role in the collapse.
Eyewitness News is waiting on a call back from the town’s building inspector.
