Officials to dedicate new grain terminal in Alton, IA

ALTON, Iowa (KTIV) -- Last year, a dust explosion destroyed a grain terminal in Alton, Iowa, injuring a Remsen man.

Tomorrow, Ag Partners will unveil a new facility at an open house. The new terminal is part of a 5.1 million bushel facility, with state-of-the-art features.

It will be able to receive and load-out commodities at a rate of more than 50,000 bushels an hour.

A grain dust explosion sparked by an overheated pulley bearing destroyed the old one. Matt Galles suffered burns on over a quarter of his body in the blast.
