An overnight grain elevator fire in the eastern South Dakota city of Miller prompted officials to temporarily close off roads and evacuate about 15 homes.
An employee at a nearby business reported the fire at Miller Grain about 11 p.m. Wednesday. Homes downwind from the scene were evacuated as a precaution about 1:30 a.m. because of concerns about strong winds and embers and also possible toxic fumes from rodent control chemicals inside the facility, authorities said. The 40-50 residents were allowed to return home about 3:30 a.m. Thursday.
