The Jamestown (N.D.) Rural Fire Department responded to a fire at Gavilon Fertilizer LLC at 10:20 a.m. Jan. 14.

According to Fire Chief Rick Woehl, some soybeans in a dryer had begun smoldering and very little to no damage was done aside from some burnt beans.

“There were a couple of hot spots,” he says. “They basically just opened the vents and drained the soybeans out.”

Five units and 14 firefighters were on the scene for about 30 minutes.
