Weekend Fire Destroys Honey Company Building in Andover

ANDOVER, S.D. (AP) – Fire has destroyed a building at the Taylor Honey Co. in the northeastern South Dakota town of Andover.

Officials say the Sunday afternoon fire started in the engine of a fuel-powered pump that two workers were using. One man was treated at the scene for minor burns.

Firefighters contained the blaze to the honey company building but a few homes nearby were evacuated as a precaution.

The building contained beeswax, honeycombs and other items. Business owner Paul Taylor says the honey harvest has wrapped up and all of the company’s honey had already been shipped out.
