Ohio Co-op Says No Fire, Danger After Explosion

Legacy Farmers' CEO says September explosion damaged three silos

An explosion at a grain silo at Legacy Farmers, Custar, OH, in September has left residents in the town of 200 uneasy, reports 13abc.

13abc reached out to Legacy Farmers President/CEO Mark Sunderman. He assures that the fire is out, and there is no danger to the people who live near the Custar location.

He says that an explosion did take place in September, because some grain was kept outside due to the large harvest. 

Later, when it was stored in the elevator, the grain warmed up and allowed a fire to smolder, which led to an explosion.

In all, three silos were damaged of the 50 on the property, including a crack in the roof of one of them.
