Negaunee’s Vista Theater has roof collapse

NEGAUNEE — The historic Vista Theater in Negaunee had its roof cave in earlier this morning.

Several streets were blocked off while Negaunee city officials determined the course of action.

The roof’s drain, along with a majority of the building, is over 100 years old.

Rain that fell on the roof couldn’t drain off safely, so it pooled together, and the weight casued the collapse.
