The blaze broke out around five a-m at the Glenhaven Nursing Home.  The main nursing home was not evacuated as of mid-morning, but authorities said residents were moved to a place away from the fire.  

Saint Croix County sheriff's officials said the addition's roof has collapsed.  No injuries have been reported.  

Various media reports said about 100 fire-fighters from up to 20 departments were called.  The new facility was being built on the west side of the 53-year-old building, which provides respite-and-short term care, plus therapy-and-rehab services for up to 44 residents.
