Fire has destroyed the Diamond W Feeds Elevator in Medina, North Dakota.

The lower level of the elevator complex was filled with smoke when firefighters arrived shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday.

After several hours of trying to extinguish the smoldering fire on the lower level, crews discovered flames had spread to the upper level.

One firefighter was treated for minor burns to his face.

Firefighters also spent several hours putting out small grass fires as far as a half mile from town sparked by burning embers blown by high winds.
