Ugh! There's a train shot that will grab a lot of views.....for all of the wrong reasons. Sad loss of a historic building. Grain elevators look pretty innocuous, but they can be pretty dangerous. Many have had large dust explosions. In this case, it appears as if they facilities were in use, so there was product in the elevator.

On the other hand, you could view the set as documenting the fine work of the firefighters in keeping the flames from consuming the adjoining buildings!
