Update: Six injured in Taunton warehouse collapse
TAUNTON, Mass. -- An industrial warehouse under construction in Taunton has collapsed, injuring six workers.
Taunton authorities say the structure caved in just before 10 a.m. Tuesday as some of the workers were on the roof.
The building is part of an industrial park under construction near the Silver City Galleria shopping center.
Fire Chief Leman Padelford says all of the injured were conscious and alert when emergency workers arrived.
Workers say a wall caved in, causing the metal roof to collapse.
Those who were on the roof appeared to escape major injury, while others below may have been more seriously hurt.
Poor weather prevented an attempt to airlift some of the workers, who instead were taken to area hospitals.
There's no immediate word on what caused the collapse.
