STERLING, Colo.- A Wednesday afternoon fire that broke out at a northern Colorado fertilizer plant has destroyed 95% of the facility.
The fire erupted at a Kugler Company production facility in Sterling, CO just after 3 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.
Sterling Fire Chief Kurt Vogel says the blaze was started by a welding accident inside the facility.
It took firefighters a little more than an hour to knock down the blaze, which was isolated to a single structure.
No serious injuries were reported.
Kugler Company manufactures and supplies liquid fertilizer products throughout the Midwest and eastern cornbelt.
Kugler Company officials say in a press release that they plan to switch production to other locations until the Sterling facility is back in operation.
