A 120-year-old feed mill in Wisconsin operated by Boyd Feed and Supply collapsed in a fire early Monday morning, local news organizations reported.
Crews from eight area fire departments responded to the plant in Boyd, WI after the fire ignited at the facility around 4:30 a.m., according to coverage by the Chippewa Herald. Some homes near the feed mill were evacuated during the incident after first responders arrived at the scene.
“We did a lot of feed business. That’s our main business, and I don’t know if we are going to rebuild or not. We will see what happens,” the owner of the Boyd Feed and Supply site, Jerry Gully, told NBC News affiliate WEAU.
No injuries occurred during the fire, the television news station said. An investigation into the cause of the blaze is still ongoing.
Reports did not indicate whether dust was a factor in the fire or not.
