by KIX101.1 /1230 KFJB News Department posted Jan 8 2014 10:47AM
The Beaman Fire Department was dispatched to the 19,000 mile of 100th Street in Marshall County at 2:52 PM on Tuesday, on the report of a grain bin fire.

Two other departments, from B-Certs and Conrad Fire, along with the Grundy County Sherrif's Office assissted with controling the blaze.

The fire was believed to have been limited to the top portion of the grain bin, therfore, a bucket truck was called in to cut a hole in the sidewall of the bin to drain out the burnt corn. It's estimated that 5,000 bushel of corn was drained out of the bin owned by Stan Neff of Beaman.

Firefighters were on the scene of the grain bin blaze for about five hours.

The suspected cause of the fire is believed to be electrical.
