Update: Cause of Baldwin elevator fire may never be known

Email

The cause of a fire that destroyed a historic Baldwin grain elevator and feed mill may never be discovered.

Lee Seim, the Baldwin-area dairy farmer who owned the facility, didn't have insurance on it. As a result, there aren't any insurance companies trying to find out how the blaze started -- and the village of Baldwin wants the debris cleaned up as quickly as possible.
