A Stafford Fire and Rescue Department press release announced that five people were injured during construction of a new 50 by 60 foot airplane hangar at Dogwood Airport. It appears that the roof trusses collapsed, critically injuring four and causing one other person to sustain non-life threatening injuries. All five were transported to hospitals.

Dogwood airport is off of U.S. 1 in Falmouth, across the highway from Stafford High School.
