OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - Fire crews in Owensboro spent time Tuesday at an old grain complex along 7th Ave. and Moreland Avenue.

A viewer sent us video of the scene while they worked to get the fire out.

Battalion Chief Steve Leonard with OFD says there was a crew demolishing a section of the old grain complex using a cutting torch and ignited some grain dust. 

He says they were on scene from about 11:30 a.m. to about 2:15 p.m. 

Chief Leonard says the biggest challenge was the section on fire was about 70 to 80 feet in the air.
