Huge Grain Fire Causes $1 Million in Damage

Associated Press

A spectacular fire visible for 35 miles across the snowy prairie swept through the Comstock Farmers Elevator, destroying 250,000 bushels of grain and causing damage estimated at more than $1 million.

Firefighters from nine communities answered the alarm Monday night in this northwestern Minnesota town and doused nearby bulk fuel tanks and a service station to avoid explosions. Three firefighters were injured, one seriously. The cause of the blaze had not been determined.
