Enid, OK – No injuries reported in Okla. grain elevator fire
ENID, Okla. (AP) Enid fire officials say no one was hurt when fire broke out at a grain elevator.
The fire department was notified about 7:30 a.m. Friday of a blaze at Johnston Terminal Elevator. Fire Marshal Ken Helms says the fire was extinguished but crews continued to check on it.
Helms says it appears a rubber conveyor belt system used to move grain had caught fire but there was no exposure to any of the grain bins.
Work had been done on the conveyor system Thursday, which involved welding, and that may have been the cause of the fire.
