Hawarden, Iowa — A corn crib was destroyed in a fire on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 near Hawarden.
According to Hawarden Fire Chief Jon Strong, about 11:05 AM, the Hawarden Fire Department was called to the report of corn crib fire at a place owned by Ron Seik at 1894 480th Street, three miles south and three miles east of Hawarden.
The chief says the fire department saw an old corn crib on fire as they approached the scene. He says they used water to fight the fire.
Strong says that there were no injuries reported.
The Ireton Fire Department was called for additional water. The chief says the Hawarden Ambulance crew normally responds with the fire department, but they were out of town on a transfer so the Ireton Ambulance responded instead.
He says the cause of the fire appeared to be burning embers from a garbage fire.
He says crews were on scene about two hours.
