(DUBOIS) - Dubois firefighters battled a grain bin fire on Hickory Grove Road Tuesday afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the fire at Kevin Kalb's farm at 12:45 p.m. after another farmer Blake Kalb spotted flames coming from a grain dryer. He shut off the propane which was likely feeding the fire inside the dryer.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire contained to the grain dryer, but the drier was destroyed.

Firefighters believe the grain stopped flowing creating a hotspot where the burner is located.
