Injuries have been reported after a building in Hornersville collapsed near a mobile home.

Hornersville Mayor William Forsythe tells Region 8 News a vacant building on Main Street collapsed and debris fell on the trailer Wednesday morning.

A fire official at the scene said a man and woman were in the home at the time of the collapse. The woman may have suffered a few broken bones while the man's injuries are unknown at this time.

The woman was reportedly in the kitchen and the man was sitting on the couch during the collapse. The woman was freed after about 15 to 20 minutes.

 Residents say the building that started to collapse has been vacant and decaying for years.
