Holland firefighters quell grain bin fireOctober 17, 2019
From Local Sources
HOLLAND — Units of the Holland Volunteer Fire Department responded Wednesday morning to the report of a grain bin smoking north of Holland.
The 8:06 a.m. call sent the department to a Balsmeyer Farms grain bin at State Road 161 and County Road 800S, according to Fire Chief Adam Chambers.
Chambers said it appeared a lightning strike busted a light bulb inside the bin, causing its contents to smolder.
Six firefighters and three trucks were on the scene three hours emptying the bin and watering down the smoldering contents.
Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted on standby.
