Firefighters said the roof of an old mill partially collapsed, injuring a man in Simpsonville on Thursday.

Simpsonville Fire Chief Wesley Williams said the collapse happened at 300 South Street.

Williams said a worker was injured when the old mill's roof partially collapsed. He said the building is in the process of being remodeled.

FOX Carolina crews at the scene said the worker was taken away from the scene by ambulance.

Williams said the injured worker had non-life-threatening injuries.

An eyewitness told FOX Carolina the workers were reclaiming wooden beams when the roof collapsed.

Crews at the scene said several other workers were stuck on the roof after the collapse, requiring firefighters to use ladders to help get them down.
