Fire damages Ohio grain elevator; no injuries

EVENDALE, Ohio (AP) — Fire at a grain elevator in suburban Cincinnati has caused heavy damage. No injuries were reported.

A Hamilton County dispatcher says the fire at the Bunge (BUNG'-ee) North America facility in the village of Evendale was reported around 11:30 a.m. Friday. A firefighter answering the department's phone in the Cincinnati suburb said he had no information on the cause of the fire or when it was brought under control.

A spokeswoman at Bunge North America headquarters in St. Louis says company officials are working with the fire department to determine the cause of the blaze. Company spokeswoman Deb Seidel (seye-DEL') says the agribusiness and food ingredients company didn't have a damage estimate.

Bunge North America is part of Bunge Limited, based in White Plains, New York.
