It’s been 17 months since a fire destroyed a grain mill at Valley Wide Co-op in Preston. Construction on a new facility has finally started.

The March 7, 2012, fire caused approximately $3 million in damage and destroyed the landmark structure at 264 S. State.

Construction workers pour footings at Valley Wide Co-op’s Preston operation on Thursday. The company is rebuilding a grain mill that burned down in 2012.

Cement footings for the new, 95 by 125 foot mill were poured on Thursday and will be completed this week. Plans call for 10-foot cement walls. The lower eaves will be 26 feet high with a metal roof, according to Shaun Parkinson, area and feed-division manager for the company.
