TRENT, S.D. (KELO) — Fire has destroyed a landmark in the town of Trent north of Sioux Falls.

KELOLAND News was on the scene as the town’s grain elevator collapsed Friday evening in a flaming pile of burning debris.

The fire continued burning after the collapse. Several area fire departments were on the scene to help keep the flames from spreading.

Smoke from the flames could be seen for miles.

“There were probably about 10 fire departments and then a lot of local farmers are bringing semis with water in and a lot of spraying companies have brought their water trucks down,” Trent Volunteer Fire Department chief Tom Scherff said. “We have multiple units supplying us with water this evening.”

The elevator had corn in it at the time of the fire.

As of Friday night, there was no word on the cause of the fire.
