Fairmont Elevator Where Silo Collapsed Hopes to Reopen by Harvest

The owners of a $22 million grain elevator where one silo collapsed last month hope to reopen the facility in time for this fall's harvest in southern Nebraska.

Investigators and structural engineers are still working to determine the cause of the silo collapse at the elevator near Fairmont. It had been open for less than a year.

The grain elevator owned by CPI of Hastings and the Lansing Trade Group of Overland Park, Kan., has seven other silos that appear to be intact.

Bob Fifield of CPI says all the silos are being emptied as a precaution before demolition of the damaged silo. The grain is being moved to the company's other locations.
