Belmont fire department roof damaged
BELMONT - Firefighters had their own emergency to deal with as Hurricane Sandy hit Monday night, as part of the fire department's metal roof flipped over.
At about 8 p.m., members of the fire department were sitting at a table when they heard a loud noise, said Fire Chief David Parenti.
'It was exciting at first, we didn't know what was going on,' he said.
A gust of wind had flipped a metal roofing section to one side. There was no serious damage caused to the building aside from some minor leaking. The roof was repaired Tuesday morning, he said.
