Reba McEntire had to be rescued from a second-story window after the building's stairs collapsed, local Fox News affiliate KXII reported.
The stairwell between the second and third stories of the building collapsed, according to City of Atoka Emergency Management Director, Travis Mullins. It fell onto the stairway between the first and second stories, KXII reported.
The destruction effectively trapped all who were inside on whichever floor they were on at the time. The fire department had to help people out of the second-story window and down a ladder, according to KXII.
While touring the historic Atoka, Oklahoma building, said to have been there for over 100 years, for a potential future project, McEntire and Coby Scherrill, who was with her, noticed the stairs were weak.
"We were just touring the building and the stairwell was weak it seemed weak but we did not realize how weak it was until several people had gone down it and then we heard the crash and saw the stairs fall," Scherrill told KXII.
"Oh it was pretty scary, I was worried about who was downstairs and how bad it was," Scherrill added.
Only one person was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries, and everyone else, including McEntire, is okay, KXII reported.
