Fire On Farm In Orion, IL


A grain bin explosion and fire rocked a farm just outside of Orion, Illinois Tuesday morning. Firefighters were called to a farm on 1500 Ave. and Debaillie Rd. just after 9:30 on a report of an explosion. Orion Fire Chief Dan Myers says the call involved a liquid propane gas dryer.

"Upon arrival, we had an LP gas tank on fire and, obviously, a grain bin explosion, as well as a small barn on fire at the same time," Myers said.

They called in for extra help to get water to the scene. Myers said they used the water to cool off the gas tank so they could shut it off. Once that was done, the fire was quickly brought under control.

No one was hurt.
