The North Bannock County Fire District acknowledges the tragedy that occurred today when a building under construction collapsed, fatally injuring one worker and severely injuring another. Our first concern is for the workers and their families. An investigation by the proper authorities to determine the cause has been initiated. The North Bannock County Fire District had planned to lease two of the bays in the building as a temporary fire station until a permanent station could be completed. Other options will now need to be considered.
