(Fanwood-WABC, May 15, 2007) - Three people were injured, including two that needed to be rescued, from the collapse of a business in Fanwood, New Jersey, Tuesday afternoon.
Officials say the roof of Livingston-Wilbor Corp. at 238 South Avenue collapsed just before 2 p.m.
A cinderblock wall from the construction of Station Mews condo complex appears to have given way, crashing into the roof of the business.
Authorities say three people were injured, including two who were rescued from the rubble of the debris.
All the victims were reported to be conscious, and were talking with rescuers.
The collapsed building is home to the Livingston-Wilbor Corp., which provides custom packaging and labeling. It was originally built in 1930.
The Station Mews condo complex, currently under construction, has been touted as a key part of downtown Fanwood's long-awaited redevelopment.
The complex, which features four retail spaces and eight luxury condos on the second story, was scheduled to open this fall.
