Knox Factory Roof Collapses After Rain

Part of the roof at a Knox County factory collapsed after heavy rain early Thursday night, injuring a number of people, authorities said. Initial reports indicated some people were trapped in the building. But WYMT-TV at Hazard reported that three people were injured and that all had been removed from the wreckage. Kentucky State Police at Hazard confirmed the incident. The collapse occurred about 8:30 p.m. at Tru Seal Technologies Inc., a firm that makes insulating glass sealant.
