Poland fire station expansion collapses
POLAND, Maine (AP) — An unfinished, 8,000-square-foot addition to the Poland Fire and Rescue building has been knocked down by high winds.
Fire Chief Mark Bosse says the structure fell at about 4 a.m. Thursday. No one was hurt.
He tells the Sun Journal (http://bit.ly/VPcV4e ) the collapse caused thousands of dollars in damage and likely will delay the project by about two weeks.
The collapse occurred just as firefighters were returning from responding to a car crash.
Bosse says they heard a loud noise and thought it was snow sliding off the metal roof.
The $2.3 million expansion was being built for storage space, offices, a locker room and a bunk room.
