Poland Fire Station Expansion Collapses
01/11/2013 8:20 AM ET  

An unfinished, 8,000-square-foot addition to the Poland Fire and Rescue building has been knocked over by high winds and delayed the expansion project.

POLAND, Maine (AP) _ Fire Chief Mark Bosse said the structure fell at about 4:00 a.m. Thursday. No one was hurt.

He told the Sun Journal 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 said 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.
