Collapsing Corn Bin Bursts into Flames

An Indiana family already facing the loss of a grain silo is counting their blessings after an explosion.

Jordan White posted video from his family farm in Switz City a Town in Indiana

The family watched as an overhead tank full of corn began to collapse and tip to the side. As the large metal structure fell, it reportedly ripped power boxes off the wall which caused the spark that ignited the cloud of grain dust that was billowing below. As someone in the video calls for everyone to get back, the cloud bursts into flames, shooting out in all directions. "We are very fortunate that there were no injuries," White wrote on Facebook. The collapse also caused damage to the concrete grain dump and the elevator.
