No injuries in grain elevator explosion
08/15/2019

(KLZA)--No injuries were reported following an explosion Wednesday afternoon at a Falls City grain facility.

The Falls City Rural Fire Department was called to Consolidated Grain and Barge on the south edge of Falls City shortly after 3 o'clock following an explosion in one of the legs of the elevator.

Rural Fire Department member Mike Ramsey said the blow-out doors in the leg worked as designed, calling it the best case scenario to what could have been a bad situation. There was no fire.

Firefighters were on the scene for about six hours. The State Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the explosion.
