In Kansas, residents four miles north and four miles west of the EGE Products ethanol plant near Minneola were evacuated Tuesday following a fire that broke out and took four hours to get under control. Local fire officials were concerned smoke, especially chemicals potentially present in the smoke, could cause health problems for people nearby. Fewer than 10 homes were evacuated, however. No cause of the fire or what damage was caused has been reported as of yet.
