2,500 bushels of grain on the ground


October 8, 2009

A pile of grain was found outside the Pacific Northwest Grain Cooperative elevator on Last Street in Colfax Tuesday morning. The street was blocked off to traffic while crews vacuumed up the grain, estimated to be about 2,500 bushels. Chief Bill Hickman said the grain spill is suspected to be the work of vandals. The grain auger was believed to have been turned on sometime after 12:30 Tuesday morning. Estimated time for removing the spilled pile was two to three hours.
