Re: Big popcorn popper

I'm surprised they got away with cutting holes in the side of the bin. If they didn't do it on both sides, a neighbor plugged the center hole over his auger, so started taking the grain out of the door, and the bin tipped over.

I helped with a grain bin fire once. It was a much smaller bin. We were shoveling the grain out but had to get out of the bin when it started to flame up through the corn. A lot of water and a big wet mess. The guy fed it to cattle. I think there was around 2,000 bushels left when they started to spray water inside of the bin.
