WALTHAM, MA - While on patrol October 4th, a Waltham Police officer saw that a roof had collapsed at 200 Moody Street. Waltham Fire dispatched Engine 1, Squad 5, Rescue 1, Ladder 2, Medic 1 and the Safety Chief. Firefighters accessed the roof and observed a 20’ diameter hole. The building was abandoned, with the plan to tear it down. The fire department secured the building, and the building inspector was also investigating the situation. Of note was that only one week prior, Moody St. was shut down for a food venue event and thousands of people would have been walking past this site during the roof collapse.
