The Franklin radar picked up this story from Worcester:
"The owner of a Worcester apartment building that partially collapsed earlier this month took dozens of tenants to court on Monday seeking a way to remove their possessions from the building to make way for repairs.
More than 100 people had to evacuate the 267 Mill St. building on July 15 after the roof caved in, punching a hole in the building from the fourth floor to the basement. The collapse was likely caused by construction materials placed in one small area on the roof, according to court records.
