A historic flour mill in Pendleton, Ore., that ignited this week was a total loss, a wire service is reporting.
The blaze started at the Grain Craft Flour Mill started at about 2;25 p.m. Aug. 9, then reignited at about 4 a.m. Aug. 10, according to The Associated Press.
Firefighters from nine agencies responded to the blaze and were still working to extinguish it late Aug. 10, because of the amount of slow-burning grain in the mill, the AP reported.
No injuries were reported.
The 100-year-old mill was one of three production facilities for Grain Craft, which is the largest grain milling company in the U.S., according to its website.
