Contractors injured after falling from roof

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Two contractors hired to put a roof on an East Utica home ended up in the hospital Friday morning.

The two fell from a roof in the 1100 block of Leeds Street. Utica fire officials say it appears debris from a collapsing chimney caused the two to fall from the two-and-a-half-story roof.

Both men were transported by ambulance to a local hospital. No word yet on the extent of their injuries or their names.

The Utica Fire Department is checking into whether or not all permit processes were followed and codes requirements adhered to.
