Fire at old Farmstead plant in Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)Rescue crews in Cedar Rapids were called out early to a plant fire Tuesday morning.

It happened at the former Sinclair Farmstead Foods plant near the corner of 14th Avenue and 2nd Street SE just after 6:30 a.m.

Authorities say they're going to let the fire burn.  There are at least 25 semi-trailers worth of raw corn that was stored on the main floor of the building.

The plant's east side of the building burned in July.
Crews thought that fire seemed suspicious because there were no utilities to the building.

No word on the cause of this fire.
