LIBERAL, Kansas — A large fire destroyed a building and some railcars in Liberal Sunday night.

The fire was in an old, unused flour mill next to the Equity Grain Elevator. From there, the blaze spread to a fertilizer warehouse.

The fire call came in around 7:30 p.m. Sunday. It took 75 firefighters and 15 trucks to put out the flames.

No one was hurt.

Some fire crews remain on the scene Monday to put out hot spots.

Investigators have not determined the cause of the fire yet.
