GREGORY- The Chief of Police in Gregory confirms one person died when a house collapsed during demolition this afternoon.

Before 4pm, the call came in for three people trapped beneath what was left of the home on the corner of S. Gregory and Franklin Street.

We're told the homeowner was working to demolish the home himself, but something went wrong and the house came down.

One person was taken to the hospital via Halo Flight. Another person was removed from the home by firefighters and was being looked over by medics. There's no details on their conditions.
