INDICE DE GALERIAS
GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — A fire has caused more than $500,000 in damage to a farm implement business in Grinnell.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (http://bit.ly/1700xrj) that the fire at the Grinnell Implement Store was discovered around 1 a.m. Friday.
The fire caused explosions that shot flames high into the air.
Firefighters say the fire started in a storage shed, igniting oil cans. That caused several small explosions that woke up people several blocks away.
The fire stripped nearly 10 tractors down to their skeletons in a matter of minutes, and narrowly missed the business' main building.
No one was hurt.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
