DEWITT, Iowa (KWQC) — City officials have closed the 300 and 400 blocks of 1st Street due to a compromised grain bin.

Officials tell us there is a large crack in a bin at The Feed & Grain Store, Inc. They say the bin is full of corn and it will take a week to empty.

As a precaution, officials closed down 1st Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue, in case it were to break open. The roads are expected to be closed at least for the rest of the week.
