Reports are that two and a half million bushels of corn are at risk, as corn inside a concrete storage is smoldering and could catch flame. It’s a very serious situation.
A notice on the Farmers Coop Society web site says simply that the Sioux Center Grain Location WILL NOT be accepting grain until further notice. The note says to contact John Hansen at 712-722-2671 with any questions.
The fire call went out about 6 PM, and at last report crews were still on the scene.
We’ll have more information when it becomes available.
