Silo fire in Kreamer this morning at Wood Mode

KREAMER — No injuries were reported after a silo caught fire at the Wood Mode plant in Kreamer this morning. Tom Morgensen tells us some type of combustive event triggered the smoky fire around 6:55 a.m.

 

The blue silo that sits along Route 522 was not seriously damaged and was empty at the time of the fire. Half of the Wood Mode plant continues to operate normally. They hope to have the rest of the plant up and running by the end of the workday. Route 522 in front of the plant is open to traffic. Firefighters remained on the scene at 9 a.m. this morning working to put the fire out. (Ali Stevens)
