Nebraska fire marshal preaches safety to grain dryers

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)--The Nebraska State Fire Marshal's office is encouraging operators of grain-drying facilities to maintain their equipment to reduce the risk of fire.

Spokesman Ray Nance says some grain storage facilities and farms have recently had fires as a result of grain-drying operations.

The fire marshal says grain-drying operators should have their dryers inspected by a qualified service technician. Equipment safety controls should be in place and working, and controls should not be modified.

Drying systems also should be inspected for chaff buildup. In some dryers, weeds, stems and pods might interfere with the movement of grain through the dryer.
