All three stations were dispatched when a fire was reported at the Demeters Grain facility on Prairie Hill Road on November 3. The fire was located in a room under one of the grain silos used to house the main electrical panels. The electric company responded quickly to the scene and disconnected the power to the silos. Firefighters were then able to extinguish the fire in the panels with dry chem fire extinguishers.
