SANDWICH – Fire officials are still investigating a fire at a silo just south of town on Wednesday, Aug. 14 afternoon.
Sandwich Deputy Fire Chief Nathan King said a passerby called first responders at about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, and reported seeing black smoke coming out of a silo on Gletty Road. On arrival, he said, firefighters saw debris on fire at the bottom of the silo and the fire also extended to a nearby structure as well.
“But it was stopped and minimum damage was done, and it does not appear to be suspicious in nature at this time," King said.
King said there were no injuries to civilians or firefighters at this time. He said the actual cause of the fire is still undetermined.
King said the fire is at the same location as where the fire protection district will be holding a live fire training session from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 17. He said the Wednesday, Aug. 14 fire incident is not related to the fire training.
