In the aftermath of a grain elevator explosion and subsequent fire earlier this year, the city of Northop, MN, faces $248,000 in costs.

The Fairmont Sentinal reports 59 fire departments from all over southern Minnesota responded to the explosion, and put in 60 hours in frigid temperatures to battle the blaze.

The State Fire Marshal’s office was unable to fully determine the cause of the explosion but has ruled it accidental.

Eight Northrop residents had homes damaged during the event as well.
