Emergency crews were dispatched to a report of a fire on Coffeen Street in Homer, Illinois.

The Homer Fire Chief Don Happ tells Fox Illinois they believe the motor from an industrial fan started the fire at Bunge Grain on Coffeen Street.

Happ says 100,000 bushels of grain have been burned in the fire and he's now worried about grain dust, which he says can be explosive.

Fox's Nikki McGee is on the scene with more.
