CPI dry fertilizer plant goes up in flames

The fire at the Cooperative Producers Inc. dry fertilizer plant near U.S. Highway 6 and Showboat Boulevard has been contained, Adams County Emergency Management Director Ron Pughes stated in a news release at about 3 a.m. Friday.

He also stated that firefighters were still on scene addressing hot spots and it was expected some areas of the plant would continue to smolder.

Pughes warned that the wind would continue to move smoke into the Hastings area throughout the day and that residents should keep windows closed and stay inside, especially those who have health issues that could be exasperated by smoke.

According to the release, the railroad tracks just north of the plant were closed for a time during the fire, but they have been reopened and U.S. Highway 6 had been reopened, as well.
