Spontaneous combustion

Firefighters spray water on smoldering insulation on a biodiesel tank after it spontaneously combusted Wednesday afternoon at the Minnesota Soybean Processors plant in Brewster. Worthington and Brewster fire departments responded to the call at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. "It was insulation on the tank that we already had somebody coming next week to look at replacing," explained Kim Collin, administrative manager for Minnesota Soybean Processors, who emphasized there were no flames. "We were already aware of it, and it just heated up with the nice sunshine we had."
