Country music singer Reba McEntire was rescued from a historic building in Oklahoma after a staircase collapsed.

“While my team and I were in Atoka, OK yesterday checking out an old historical building, a staircase collapsed,” she wrote on Twitter. “Thankfully, no one was seriously injured. We were safely evacuated from the building thanks to the quick response from the Atoka fire and police departments.”

McEntire was removed from the building via a fire department ladder. The incident has garnered the attention of local politicians.

“It opened our eyes to see exactly just how unsturdy they were and when they did collapse, we [saw] what little was holding them up,” Travis Mullins, emergency management director for the city of Atoka, said in an interview on KXII.

Fans wished the singer well and were happy that nobody was injured.

This wasn’t the first time McEntire was in the news recently as she and her boyfriend both caught COVID-19 despite being vaccinated. 

“I just want to say one thing, this has been a hard year and it’s getting rougher again,” the songwriter said at the time. “You guys, please stay safe. Wear your mask. Do what you have to do. Stay home.”
