ADM Grain Dryer Fire in Fremont, NE

No one was injured and production has resumed at oilseed processing plant

The Fremont Fire Department responded to a grain dryer fire at Archer Daniels Midland in Fremont, NE, Tuesday night, reports the Fremont Tribune.

Firefighters were called to the scene just before 8 p.m. on a report of a small smoldering in a grain dryer on the fifth floor of the oilseed processing plant, Capt. Tom Christensen said.

The dryer itself was not damaged by the fire, only the grain inside.

ADM spokesperson Jackie Anderson said no one was injured in the fire and that production resumed that night. She said employees were able to quickly control the situation, but called FFD as a precaution.

The cause of the fire is still undetermined.
