The Jamestown Rural Fire Department responded to a fire at Gavilon Fertilizer LLC at 10:20 a.m. Tuesday.

According to Fire Chief Rick Woehl, some soybeans in a dryer had begun smoldering and very little to no damage was done aside from some burnt beans.

“There were a couple of hot spots,” he said. “They basically just opened the vents and drained the soybeans out.”
