Firefighters were called to a Cargill corn milling plant in Dayton, OH on Wednesday morning after a 210-gal oil tank caught on fire, several local news organizations reported. 

Hazmat teams and fire crews were sent to the scene at about 7:10 a.m., but did not observe smoke or fire when they arrived, according to coverage by the Dayton Daily News. The newspaper said the tank involved in the fire was close to empty when the fire occurred.

Crews put out the fire inside of the facility, officials told television news station WDTN, and no injuries were logged during the incident. News broadcaster WHIO said firefighters deployed foam to extinguish the blaze. 

On Sept. 1, 2017, crews were called to the corn milling plant in Dayton for a fire that possibly started in a hopper at the site, Powder & Bulk Solids reported.
