MAPLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — A fire official says a collapse in the basement of a northern New Jersey restaurant has killed one construction worker and injured another.

Emergency crews are on the scene at Coda Restaurant and Bar in Maplewood.

Deputy Fire Chief Joseph tells News 12 New Jersey that it's not clear what the workers were doing when the floor above the basement apparently collapsed Friday morning.

Callaghan says the injured worker is in serious condition. A third worker escaped injury.
