Milo family escapes injury after partial building collapse

Two adults and two children were in the building at the time

MILO, Maine (WABI) – Milo’s town manager says it’s a “miracle” no one was hurt when a building partially collapsed with a family inside.

Police say four people — the woman who owned the building, her boyfriend, and her two kids — were living in the old Masonic Building on Main Street. They were all there Monday around 2:30 p.m. when part of the roof caved in.

Town Manager Bob Canney says luckily, they were in a different area of the building than where the damage occured.

The family’s three cats also survived.

Canney says the woman was working to repair the roughly 100-year-old building. Now, it will have to be demolished.

The town is looking into whether a building next to it needs to come down, too.
