Grain dryer fire fought

Saugatuck Township Fire District first responders joined mutual aid peers from Graafschap Saturday helping Hamilton Fire snuffing a Heath Township grain dryer fire called in at 7:06 p.m. “It was a tricky fire,” said STFD IT Director Erik Kirchert, whose crew also brought a tanker and ladder truck, knowing just spraying water inside “could have catastrophic structural impact.” Grains were first dumped out at the bottom of the dryer to be extinguished. Cleanup lasted until about 8:30 p.m. (Photo by STFD Chief Greg Janik)
