Crews initially responded to a report of a trapped worker, and began trying to determine if anyone was actually in the trench, OCFA Capt. Larry Kurtz said.
A short time later, however, fire officials determined someone was in the trench, and they were working to recover the body.
Details were not immediately available on what caused the collapse.
