CROTON, Ohio

Three barns have collapsed at a central Ohio egg farm, killing at least one worker.

Ohio Department of Agriculture spokesman Bill Schwaderer (SWAH’-duhr) says the farm near Croton reported Wednesday the collapses killed two construction workers who were laying concrete blocks. Licking County coroner’s investigator George Ridgeway confirms only one death.

The barn collapses occurred at an Ohio Fresh Eggs facility about 25 miles northeast of Columbus. A woman at the farm hasn’t returned a telephone message seeking comment.
