CALEDONIA, N.Y. (AP) — Investigators in western New York are trying to determine what caused a fire that destroyed most of a large grain facility owned by Land O’Lakes.
Officials tell local media that fire crews were called around 11 p.m. Saturday after the blaze broke out at Commodity Resource Corp. in the Livingston County town of Caledonia, 15 miles south of Rochester.
Firefighters from more than two dozen departments battled the fire into Sunday morning and remained at the scene throughout the day to extinguish hot spots.
Officials say the blaze destroyed most of the plant, which is owned by Arden Hills, Minnesota-based Land O’Lakes. A locomotive inside the plant was also destroyed.
The plant was closed at the time of the fire. One firefighter suffered a minor injury.
