Fire damages DeLong Company corn dryer
The dryer was damaged extensively and Rindfleisch says it could cost as much as $300,000 to replace it.
The preliminary cause of the fire is a mechanical failure. Rindfleisch says the belt in the dryer stopped moving which caused the corn to overheat and ignite.
Clinton firefighters received mutual aid from a half dozen area fire departments. No injuries are reported.
