Snowy fire call

Posted: Monday, Feb 11th, 2013

Charis Prunty/Register

A fire at the Sexauer Seeds grain tower along the railroad tracks on Main Avenue called firefighters out into the snow Monday morning. The call came in at about 8:15 a.m. with a report of flames jumping out from the building.

Brookings’ volunteer firefighters trudged through snow and had to scoop around a fire hydrant as they began their work. The Brookings Police Department closed off a portion of Main Avenue surrounding the elevator.

The Sexauer Seed Company Historic District was posted to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. Learn more about the fire there in Tuesday’s Register.
