WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont rescue official says none of the injuries suffered by four people in the collapse of an under-construction salt shed in Williston were life threatening.

Williston Fire Chief Ken Morton says the four workers were on the roof of the building when it collapsed, just before 2 p.m. Thursday. The workers each fell 21 feet onto “soft ground.”

The building was being constructed by Neagley and Chase Construction Company. President Mark Neagley told the Burlington Free Press (https://bfpne.ws/1yacKSP ) he had no immediate explanation for the collapse; officials are focusing on the conditions of the injured workers.

The four individuals were freed from the debris in less than 15 minutes.
