MAULDIN, S.C. (AP) — Two workers have been hurt in a store construction collapse in South Carolina.
Mauldin Police Sgt. Benjamin Ford told news outlets that the collapse occurred around 4 p.m. Wednesday. Ford said the employees were taken to a hospital. Their names have not been released and there was no word on the extent of their injuries.
Construction on the store had started April 23. Ford said it’s unclear what caused the collapse.
Deputy fire marshal Chris Camacho said officials are trying to determine the extent of the damage. It appears wooden beams fell to the ground and several interior walls buckled.
