Stack fire shuts down SDSP plant

Posted: Tuesday, Nov 26th, 2013

VOLGA An overheated motor bearing was the cause of a stack fire Monday at the South Dakota Soybean Processors plant.

Volga firefighters were able to get the flames knocked back quickly, said Volga Fire Chief Matt Anderson, but teams were onsite more than three hours making sure that the blaze was completely extinguished and the fire area cooled.

The call came shortly after 4:30 p.m. Monday, alerting Volga emergency teams to a fire at the soybean plant, which is just east of Volga at Caspian Avenue and U.S. Highway 14.
