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

Fire Chief Mark Bosse says the structure fell at about 4 a.m. Thursday. No one was hurt.

He tells 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 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.
