No injuries reported after roof collapse in Dodge Center

DODGE CENTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Three people are safe after the roof of an old city maintenance building collapsed on a construction crew in Dodge Center.

Dodge County Sheriff Jim Jensen said the building was slated for demolition on Monday and crews inside were working on removing asbestos when the roof collapsed.

The call came in just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and crews were on the scene within minutes because the building is next door to the Dodge Center Fire Department.

One man was trapped inside a loader in the building and the fire department had to cut away part of the roof to get him out.

Another man was inside a Bobcat when the roof collapsed but was able to climb out over roof.

The third man was working near a door and said he ran when he heard cracking boards.

All of the men were evaluated and are OK.
