A spectacular blaze erupted in downtown Mt. Angel early Saturday morning, destroying a grain elevator and several businesses.

The fire was discovered at 12:48 a.m. by Mt. Angel police and arriving fire crews found the buildings in the 200 block of South Main Street, just south from the downtown core.

The Mt. Angel Fire Department reported in a statement Saturday morning that the four-alarm fire involved 120 firefighters and 35 pieces of equipment from Mt. Angel, Silverton, Woodburn, Hubbard, Monitor, St. Paul and Marion County Fire District 1.

The fire destroyed or damaged four buildings.

The site, once an outlet for Wilco Farm Stores, housed The Blackbird Granary, an antique business; KP’s Harvest Time Produces, Wood Pellet Products; and Hidden Bed of Oregon, the fire agency reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. No injuries were reported.

This story will be updated as more information from authorities becomes available.
