City of San Benito officials and the president of the San Benito Fire Fighters Association remain tightlipped on the circumstances surrounding the injury of a fireman after a firehouse ceiling collapsed on top of him.
The fireman, whose identity has yet to be revealed, was taken to a local hospital Friday night, reportedly with a concussion and other minor injuries, after a piece of sheetrock fell on him while he was using a treadmill at Fire Station #2, located on Williams Road.
The sheetrock measured 2-feet-by-4-feet, Assistant City Manager Arturo Rodriguez said.
The firefighter in question is reportedly on paid leave.
