Second Explosion Reported At Greene County Grain Elevator Over The Weekend

A second explosion at a Greene County grain elevator was reported over the weekend. The second explosion happened Saturday night just after 7 PM.

Both explosions happened at Landus Cooperative in Jefferson. The secondary explosion said to be smaller than the first one that shook nearby homes and punctured a structure on Friday morning.

Landus said the Saturday night blast was caused by smoldering grain in a bin next to the elevator. The secondary explosion on Saturday night did lead to a small fire. No injuries were reported in either explosion.
