7 March, 2012 Preston Grain Growers Catches Fire

Click on picture to enlarge it.
By 16:00 the upper portion of the fire was engulfing the top 25% of the building. When these pictures were taken around 17:00, the top portion was gone.
A dark brown plume of smoke with orange fire could be seen from most areas of Cache Valley.
One eye witness who works here said he was loading a truck and looked over to see smoke billowing out from under the lower eves. Another said someone was doing maintenance work but wasn't sure if that was the source cause of the conflagration.

A shaky video of the area taken from corner of old Tractor/Milo's/Chinese restaurant building.
