Billings Fire Battalion Chief Terry Larson, reported on Wednesday, that two framing subcontractors were injured while setting trusses on the future Comfort Suites on Wednesday.

According to Larson, high winds were to blame. One man fall approximately 40 feet down an elevator shaft and another fell 15 feet down the same shaft before hitting the third floor of the building.

The 32 mph gust reached up to 45 mph according to the NWS’ airport-based observation equipment. Often there is little difference between the speed of stronger winds on the Rims and in the areas below. For more information on the event, please visit the MISSOULIAN.
