Sioux City fire crews responded to a semi trailer on fire at the Kent Feeds Plant in Sioux City late Monday morning.
It was a pretty tense situation for workers there because the big rig was on fire inside the building inside the loading area of the feed plant. Once on scene, fire crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire workers inside the plant were evacuated.
