Wind takes out Cottage Grove G-Will Liquors' scaffolding


Wind gusts upward of 10 miles per hour caused the scaffolding at the construction site of the future G-Will Liquors store in Cottage Grove to come crashing down Thursday.

Cottage Grove police officer Dan Schoen said the incident happened between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m., when the wind in the area had begun to pick up. 

No one was injured, Schoen said, as crews were not on the job site because of the recent cold weather.
