LIMA, Ohio - No one was hurt during a fire Tuesday at the Greater Ohio Ethanol LLC plant on Houx Parkway in Lima.
Firefighters said grain dust apparently sparked the blaze about 9 p.m. in the ductwork of a corn dryer. The blaze was under control in 20 minutes.
The plant has been operating since May, though last month Greater Ohio Ethanol filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Toledo. The company said it had assets of $129 million and debts of $123 million.
