GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A man was hospitalized Monday after he collapsed in a large fuel storage tank in Green Bay.  

Firefighters were called just after 11 a.m. to the U.S. Oil Company's tank farm.  

Rescuers said they were challenged by a floating floor inside the tank, which moves up and down to prevent explosive gas vapors from building up.

The man was put in a rescue basket, and was then brought up to the roof of the fuel tank.  

A ladder truck brought him to the ground, an ambulance then took him to a hospital. His condition was not disclosed at last word.
