Dryer catches fire at Saskatchewan grain terminal

A major fire broke out late October 11 at the North West Terminal approximately one kilometre east of the town of Unity, Sask.

The terminal had just recently installed a new high capacity dryer, which is where the fire started. At this time, the fire is contained to this area, but is in close proximity to the terminal’s main offices so the site has been evacuated, according to RCMP reports.

This area of Saskatchewan is suffering through a vey difficult, wet harvest, and this will come as a blow to those farmers trying to complete their harvest and deal with tough grain. The company has not yet released a statement and we do not know, at this time, when it will be open for business.

Update: according to their Facebook page the office is open but the driveway will remain closed for now.
