(KNSI) - A farmer’s grain bin started on fire in Stearns County.

The sheriff's office says at 9:08 Saturday morning firefighters were called to 23106 Viewcrest Rd in Krain Township, about three miles north of Albany, for a grain bin on fire.

The property owner, 66-year-old Earl Felling, says he was drying grain and went to check the bin when he found the bottom portion of the grain on fire.

Investigators say they believe the aerator inside the bin stopped working and the grain started burning because of the heater.
