Fire call

RAYMOND -- The Raymond Fire Department was called to the Minnesota Valley Alfalfa Producers plant shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday after some alfalfa bales caught fire behind the plant.


The fire was close to the plant on a windy day, so firefighters doused the bales with water, said Raymond Fire Chief Ardell Tensen. The field next to the plant had already been harvested, which reduced the chances of it spreading beyond the plant area, he said.

Extra water tankers were paged from the Prinsburg and Pennock departments, Tensen said.

Firefighters were called back shortly after midnight, when the wind shifted and the still-smoldering bales became a concern again.

Aside from the burned bales, there was no other damage, and no one was injured, Tensen said.


SPICER -- An ambulance was called shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday for two people who were injured after a fight outside O'Neil's Bar, 152 Lake Ave. N., Spicer.


MONTEVIDEO -- The Yellow Medicine County Sheriff's Office was called to a motorcycle crash with injuries Saturday afternoon on Yellow Medicine County Road 8 about one mile north of County Road 5.


The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Montevideo Hospital and later airlifted to a hospital in the Twin Cities area. No information was available Sunday about the person's condition.

There were no witnesses to the crash, and anyone with information is asked to contact the sheriff's office at 320-564-2130.
