VOLNEY, N.Y. -- Crews respond to a fire at the Sunoco Ethanol Plant in Volney. It started a little after 10 a.m. Sunday at the plant on County Route 57.
Officials say the fire started in the grain area. Some of the grain got caught up as it came through a blower.
The fire never got near any of the ethanol at the plant.
The dryer area was shut off and production halted for a few hours as the plant switched to a backup system.
