Houghton Construction Accident Injures 2

2 construction workers are hurt in Houghton after trusses collapse on a church they were working on.

It took place at the future home of Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church on Madeline Street.

At least 10 trusses on the east side of the building gave way at about 2 this afternoon.

The 2 men’s injuries aren’t life-threatening.

Yalmer Mattila Contracting says their crews weren’t setting up the trusses at the time, and they’re not sure how or why they came down.

The job site has been closed off, and state occupational health and safety officials have been called in.
