ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Fire officials say one person has died at a demolition site for the St. Paul Saints' new ballpark.

St. Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard says part of a building collapsed onto a crane operator, who died at the scene of the future Lowertown Ballpark Tuesday morning.

The former Gillette building in downtown St. Paul is being demolished to clear the site for the new ballpark.

The collapse occurred about 8 a.m.
