Mattapan church roof partially collapses

The Boston Fire Department reports the roof of the storefront Unity Tabernacle of Holiness Church at Greendale and Morton streets partially caved in this afternoon. No one was inside at the time and nobody was injured, the department reports. Firefighters checked neighboring buildings to make sure they were OK and requested a building inspector for a more thorough look at the building.

Saving a community garden in Cambridge

The Cambridge City Council today will consider a proposal to talk to Fawcett Oil about possibly buying Fawcett land now used as a community garden at Magoun Street and Whittemore Avenue.

Councilor and Vice Mayor Henrietta Davis wants the city to talk to Fawcett, which is currently in the process of selling the land to a home developer, meaning the potential loss of 65 plots. Community gardeners have begun to organize; contact [email protected] for more info.

The council meeting begins at 5:30 at City Hall.
