Grain Dryer Fire in Wisconsin

Five-alarm fire causes $250,000 in damage, injures two first responders

A fire inside a huge grain dryer tower in the town of Bristol became a five-alarm fire, with 14 fire departments responding to the scene Sunday afternoon, reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

Two first responders sustained minor injuries in the blaze that caused at least $250,000 in damage, based on structural damage and replacement cost of the dryer.

The 65-foot-high grain dryer had an active fire going on inside when the first firefighters arrived. Firefighters cut holes in the grain dryer to loosen the burned and wet corn.
