Via Seth Lasko Photography - Morning call comes in for a reported silo fire just north of Elizabethville. Crews were notified that Chief 19-1 and Chief 216 were on location and advised of smoke showing. Chief 21 arrived on scene and notified crews that it was the location of a prior silo fire event and the requested to leave a spot open for truck 22. Engine 21 arrived on scene and positioned to the rear of the farm location and stretched a line to the bottom of the silo. Following this the rest of the units would arrive on scene with truck 22 setting up and going to work utilizing the master stream. After a short time command and crew noticed steam coming from the side of the silo and after consulting with a specialist in ag events as such crews cut open a section in the top cap of the silo and crews packed up. It was noted that this silo has been burning for 5 years but do to damages they are unable to empty the contents of the silo. Chief 19-1 spoke with me after units began to clear and noted that water was seen coming from a crack in the side and a short time later observed an addition crack. During the event a firefighter was briefly overheated and was treated by ems on scene and returned to operating area a short time later.
