Roof Collapses, Traps 2 Workers Inside Building

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two workers were trapped inside the old Dodge Center Maintenance Building when the roof collapsed Tuesday afternoon.

The Dodge County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from a worker around 2:35 p.m. Tuesday, saying the roof collapsed and two people were stuck inside.

The Dodge Center Fire Department, ambulance and sheriff’s office responded to the scene.

One of the workers inside the building was able to walk out without assistance but another worker was trapped. He was working in a loader when the roof collapsed and trapped him inside the cab.

He was not injured, but the fire department needed to cut part of the collapsed building in order to free him.

Workers were preparing the building to be torn down, as it was scheduled for demolition next Monday.

The damages are unknown at this time.
