Fire damages grain elevator in ND town of CarpioCARPIO, N.D. — Authorities are investigating the cause of a grain elevator fire in the northwestern North Dakota town of Carpio and assessing the damage.
The smoldering fire began Monday after an explosion in a part of the grain-handling system at the Berthold Farmers Elevator. No one was hurt, though the surrounding area was evacuated for a time and railroad tracks were temporarily shut down as a precaution.
A crew that specializes in fighting elevator fires was brought in from South Dakota.
