Great Bend Fire Department units responded to Mid America Feeders, 251 NW 10 Ave., at 3:52 p.m. Thursday.
Firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from the grain-delivery leg of a grain elevator.
The fire started as contractors were cutting on top of the leg to dismantle it. Embers fell into the leg, catching the plastic buckets and rubber belt on fire.
With the assistance of the contractors a hole was cut through the metal to gain access to the burning belt. Units were on scene for 1.5 hours extinguishing the fire.
