MGP Fire

Crews continue monitoring a smoldering grain fire at MGP Ingredients plant in Atchison Kansas.

The fire department there responded Saturday evening to a call on the 14th Street side of the plant after MGP workers gave up trying to knock the small fire down with fire extinguishers. Fire chief Mike McDermed says his department and MGP employees are jointly working on the smoldering corn by getting it out of the bin and into the open.
