09/14/13 144 W, 1 I - + 1 - 4 Grain, Grain or Ladders Last Night on Blount Street

Ladder action on Blount Street last night at the Cargill plant. Fire in a grain dryer, extinguished by sprinkler system. Ladder 7 and Ladder 1 4 shown on the Blount Street side of the tracks. Two hydrants were also caught and supply lines charged on the street. The railroads (plural?) were notified so any trains would be halted. Dispatched at 8:45 p.m. Units on scene included E1, E3, E13, E2, L7, L2, L4, R1, Squad 14, B2, B3, A1, C20, C420, C401, EMS 1, EMS 19, D4. Some of those had been released by the time your crack fire photographer arrived and shot his first photo at 9:20 p.m. Wonder how many notable fires have happened at that location? Recall two alarms on October 24, 2002. And a fire in the silo a couple years later.

Would that be Lad 7 and Lad 4 since Lad 1 wasn’t shown on the 1st alarm?
