LuVerne Grain Elevator Destroyed in Overnight Blaze

No injuries were reported following an overnight grain elevator fire in Kossuth County. Officials say the fire started shortly after midnight Wendesday at the New Cooperative Grain Elevator in LuVerne. An exact cause has not been determined, although the fire is believed to have sparked when a worker was removing tin from the roof. Because the owners of the grain elevator were already planning on tearing it down, fire crews executed a controlled burn to save demolition costs.
