A fire burned inside for 60 days and ended in a large explosion. The dome’s top was completely destroyed. A grain explosion in a conventional silo will scatter concrete debris up to a half a mile away and will often cause fatalities. When the dome top opened, it released the explosion upward and sucked the debris back inside. No injuries, deaths, or other damage occurred.
