Volunteers, Neighbor Respond To Mid-Morning Silo Fire Wednesday

This small grain silo was slightly damaged by a Wednesday morning fire originating from the bin’s dryer at a farm located at 801 Quincy Road. A neighbor reported the fire to Owen County Security Center Dispatch at approximately 9:30 a.m. and was able to disconnect electricity and a nearby propane tank, reducing the flames before firefighters from the Cataract and Cloverdale Township volunteer fire departments arrived on the scene.

Firemen attributed the fire to a dryer malfunction and the overall damage was limited to the dryer unit and a small charred section on the outside of the bin at the farm of Oran Jones. (Staff Photo)
