Wareham Benny’s roof partially collapses in storm

Jan 4, 2018

The Onset Fire Department, National Grid and Eversource were dispatched to the former Benny’s Thursday afternoon after the building’s roof partially collapsed during a fierce storm.

Onset Fire Chief Ray Goodwin said the call was reported at approximately 2:20 p.m. An inspection revealed the building, located at 3066 Cranberry Highway, was damaged and part of roof had collapsed. National Grid and Eversource crews were called to shut off gas and electricity to the vacant structure.

In September, the owners of the Rhode Island-based department store chain announced all locations would be closed. The Wareham store was shuttered soon after.

Additional information is unavailable at this time.
