ADA, Minn. (WCCO) – Crews from more than a dozen fire departments battled a large fire that destroyed a grain elevator complex in northwestern Minnesota overnight.

According to KFGO News, the fire broke out at the Triple Crown grain elevator along Main Street in downtown Ada.

The fire started at about 6 p.m. Thursday.

In all, fire departments from every community in Norman County responded to the scene, as well as departments from Moorhead, Crookston, Mahnomen and Waubun.

Ada’s water supply was drained dry twice as crews pumped thousands of gallons of water on the blaze, according to KFGO. Also, a section of Highway 9 in the area was closed to traffic.

Crews were able to save a newer addition to the grain complex.

Fire department spokesman Kim Lewis said a cause has not yet been determined. No injuries were reported.

The Triple Crown elevator processes oats for race horses.
