Flames erupted from the top of the former CHS grain elevator in downtown Kalispell, MT, Tuesday afternoon, reports the Flathead Beacon.

The blaze was reported around 4 p.m. and the cause is under investigation. No injuries were reported.

Views from drones and thermal imaging cameras suggested the fire started in and was isolated to the highest parts of the structure.

Note: CHS ceased operations at this grain elevator last fall, marking the first time in over a century there was no working grain elevator in downtown Kalispell. CHS recently began operations at its new facility at the Glacier Rail Park east of Kalispell -- see the June/July issue of Feed & Grain for more information on the new CHS facility.
