Firefighters from several jurisdictions converged on a fire at the Arthur Grain Mill, just north of downtown Brighton, CO, reports the Brighton Standard Blade.
Fire Chief Mark Bodane of the Brighton Fire Rescue District said there were no injuries or deaths from the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The original building was a grain elevator for the Brighton Grain Co-Op before being purchased shortly after the Great Depression. The property was sold to William Arthur, who renamed the property the Arthur Grain Mill. Arthur’s mill operated for nearly 20 years before closing in 2012.
