(CLIFFORD) (AP) - Firefighters worked through Sunday night to shovel out thousands of bushels of corn from a Clifford grain bin after it caught fire.
Fire crews were called to the farm Sunday night.
Clifford Volunteer Fire Department Chief Steve LaRue says the bin's dryer fan caught fire underneath about 7,000 bushels of corn.
Members of all of the Bartholomew County's volunteer fire departments were called to help empty out the bin.
LaRue says about 6,000 bushels of corn had to be removed so that on Monday firefighters could reach the smoldering fire.
Firefighters tried to separate out the burnt corn and some of the good corn was taken to a grain elevator in nearby Taylorsville that opened up overnight.
