MAULDIN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Multiple workers were transported to the hospital following a collapse at a new construction site in Greenville County Wednesday afternoon, per the sergeant.

Mauldin Deputy Fire Marshal Chris Camacho said two crew members were injured when a structure under construction collapsed Wednesday in Mauldin.

Camacho said crews were initially dispatched to a structural collapse on West Butler Road, and found the roof had fallen in right before they arrived on scene.

Two patients were injured and transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment, said Camacho. Their condition remains unknown at this time.

Camacho said an investigation is underway and work orders have been stopped on the site of the collapse.

Fire officials said it's unclear if the weather played any part in the incident. It is unclear how many people were on site when it happened.

Camacho described the building as a one-story wooden frame structure.

Mauldin Building Department is also investigating the incident. Camacho said the two workers injured in the collapse are expected to survive.

OSHA will also come in to investigate, as the agency does anytime there is a workplace injury.
