NEW CARLISLE —
UPDATE @ 4:55 a.m: Power is steadily being restored in Clark County with only a reported 15 customers experiencing an outage.
Power was cut off as a safety measure after a corn silo collapsed Sunday night prompting crews to investigate the building.
UPDATE @ 3:35 a.m: Over 300 customers are without power in Clark County after a corn silo collapse caused crews to cut the power in order to investigate the incident.
The collapse occurred late Sunday night at Miami Valley Feed & Grain around 11:40 p.m.
Crews will be working all night into tomorrow and there’s no word on how long the outage will have customers without power.
We will monitor the DP&L outage map and continue to update the story.
Ohio 571 (Jefferson Street) will be closed while officials continue to investigate what caused a non-injury silo collapse Sunday night.
Crews were initially called to Miami Valley Feed & Grain at 880 W. Jefferson St. around 11:40 p.m. on reports of an explosion.
After a preliminary investigation, it was determined that one silo collapsed, rather than exploded, and partially damaged another building as well as caused 10,000 tons of corn to cover Ohio 571.
“What residents heard when they thought they heard explosions were the transformers blowing when the debris hit them”, said Steve Trusty, Chief of New Carlisle Fire Department.
Officials do not believe anyone is trapped as a result of the collapse, as the company said no employees were on site at the time but will further investigate the building to confirm.
The silo collapse took out at least three power poles and power lines, which caused a brief power outage that has since been restored to all area residents.
Crews will be on scene all night until midday tomorrow while they continue their investigation.
An Ohio Fire Marshal has also been called to the scene and will assist with the investigation tomorrow.
Drivers are encouraged to use Scarf Road as the detour while Ohio 571 (Jefferson Street) is blocked off.
