Peanuts Burning

Posted by romeethredge on October 16, 2015

We’ve lost a nice peanut warehouse in Donalsonville to fire. It’s the old Beall Peanut Company warehouse, that had a capacity of a whole lot of peanuts. Reports are that it was pretty full of this year’s, just harvested, peanuts belonging to Session’s Peanut Company.  It’s close to downtown and our Extension office, (see photo). The  fortunate thing is that there have been no reported injuries or fatalities. Firefighters and public safety officers are doing a good job keeping things contained .  It started about noon yesterday and this morning there is still a lot of smoke coming out of there and the whole town smells like burnt peanuts.

Here’s several photos from various sources. Wade Spooner sent me the aerial photos.
