Partial roof collapse at Ocean City hotel

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - August 26, 2012

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.
