Fire knocks out power McNabb Elevator office

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2009

A basement fire has farmers in the McNabb area holding onto their grain.  The fire started shortly before 10am Monday in the office building for the McNabb Elevator.

McNabb Fire Chief Phil Brester says an electric stove shorted out.  Electrical panels were damaged, knocking out power to the scale and the computer system.  The fire, which was contained to the basement, wasn’t a threat to the nearby grain bins.

Operators of the elevator hope to have the scale working Tuesday.
