Fire destroys grain elevator, hardware store in Crystal City, Man.

Farmers and area residents rallied to bring water to volunteer firefighters battling a grain elevator fire in Crystal City, Man. on Monday.

The fire, which started in the late afternoon, destroyed a wooden Paterson Grain terminal, as well as a hardware and farm equipment business a block away, Cudmore Bros, in the small south-central Manitoba community.

STARS Air Ambulance was also called to the scene. It’s reported a man in his 30s was transported to hospital in Winnipeg, and is in stable condition.

Farmers from the area — some of whom organized on Twitter — brought water to supply the firefighting effort and helped fire crews in wetting down nearby buildings.
