Dryer motor likely cause of farm fire

Posted: Tuesday, Nov 5th, 2013

WHITE – A dryer motor was identified as the probable cause of a farm fire near White Friday.

Both the White Fire Department and the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched about 4 p.m. Nov. 1 to a farm at 20892 478th Ave., about two miles south of White.

There, the firefighters extinguished a grain bin fire, which observers say was likely started by the bin’s dryer motor.

The extent of the damage has not yet been determined, and the incident remains under investigation.
