STERLING HEIGHTS — A fire chief said two workers have been killed after granite slabs shifted on top of them inside a business.

Sterling Heights Fire Chief Chris Martin told WDIV TV the incident occurred Monday afternoon at the Stone Warehouse.

Martin said the slabs weigh about 1,000 pounds each and measure 5-feet wide and 8-feet long. He didn't say how many slabs were on the men.

Firefighters evacuated the business while they worked to remove the slabs from on top of the men.

He said the circumstances that led to the slabs shifting are unclear.

The men's names weren't immediately released.
