Grain warehouse on fire in Portageville February 9, 2009 at 6:08 PM CST - Updated July 3 at 9:54 AM By Heartland News PORTAGEVILLE, MO ( KFVS ) - A fire damaged a grain warehouse just north of Portageville. The fire broke out at the Missouri Grain and Warehouse Inc. building on Highway 61 just after noon. Crews say a hot gear sparked the flames and a belt leading from one building to another actually spread the fire pretty quickly. The chief says it could have been much worse if they were not able to put it out so quickly. No one was hurt.
