A fire inside a huge grain dryer tower in the town of Bristol became a five-alarm fire, with 14 fire departments responding to the scene Sunday afternoon. The fire call came in at about 2:45 p.m. to the fire site on Highway V, the Sun Prairie Fire Department said. Two first responders sustained minor injuries in the blaze that caused at least $250,000 in damage, based on structural damage and replacement cost of the dryer. The two injured first responders were treated and released at the scene. The 65-foot-high grain dryer had an active fire going on inside when the first firefighters arrived, with a first alarm mutual aid call sent out for additional assistance.
