JACKSON, Mich. At least five construction workers have been rescued from a burning building in downtown Jackson.
The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports that firefighters used a ladder truck about 2:30 p.m. Friday to help the workers to safety from the former Consumers Energy headquarters.
Jackson Police Chief Matt Heins tells the newspaper that they were trapped on the fourth or fifth floor of the building.
Smoke was billowing from third- or fourth-floor windows.
The newspaper reports the building has been vacant for about 10 years and that demolition work started earlier this year.
