Firefighters responded to a large fire in Roxbury on Tuesday afternoon at around 1:30 p.m. at an old grain elevator. Nobody was injured, while seven different fire departments battled the blaze in northeast McPherson County.

The flames took down two of the surrounding structures, which also weren’t in use, and were actually being prepared to be torn down that morning. The flames left burn marks all along the side of the grain silos.

Crews were still monitoring the blaze for hot spots.
