On Tuesday afternoon, the Wentworth Fire Department responded to a grain dryer fire at Brad Minor's farm in rural Rutland. Fire Chief Wayne Backus said the call came in at about 4 p.m., and the department took three trucks to the site.
The fire was caused by overheated grain, Backus said, and firemen were at the scene for about an hour. There were no injuries, and there was minimal dollar loss, just some grain.
With harvest season beginning, Backus reminds farmers to "be careful."
