Firefighters were dispatched to the Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) soybean processing plant in Lincoln, NE in the early hours of Wednesday morning, according to a report by KLKN. A call on the fire was received around 1 a.m.

The plant’s staff evacuated the structure after a smoldering fire ignited in a dryer, the news station said. Coverage noted that officials were worried that flames and heat could impact other machines in the facility during the response.
