Fire destroys grain dryer in NW Iowa

Posted:

HINTON, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say burning corn destroyed a grain dryer in Hinton in northwest Iowa.

The fire broke out Wednesday afternoon in one of two dryers at the Hinton Co-Op.

Hinton Fire Chief Chad Beck says corn in the dryer was burning, but they don't why yet.

Crews used an aerial truck to fight the fire, which was in the upper third of the dryer. Firefighters had it under control in about an hour.

No injuries were reported, and no other buildings were damaged.
