Minnesota ethanol plant restarts after fire

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) _ A Fergus Falls ethanol plant has resumed producing ethanol after a fire last week.

Green Plains Otter Tail, a subsidiary of Green Plains Renewable Energy Inc., began producing ethanol Sunday. The plant was temporarily shut down after a fire in the plant's dryer system on March 10.

Green Plains says the plant will produce "wet cake," a byproduct of ethanol production that is sold as livestock feed, until the dryer system can be repaired. The company says those repairs might take two months.

The fire was traced to a hydraulic pump failure. No one was hurt.
