PORT ALLEN- Firefighters responded to what is described as a small electrical fire at the grain elevator at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge Tuesday afternoon.

Emergency crews were dispatched around 1:30 a port spokeswoman said. She said the fire was minor and quickly dealt with, although firefighters in West Baton Rouge requested assistance from the Baton Rouge Fire Department after the initial call.

Both departments are watching for so-called hotspots and have reported flames as being out.

The elevator was not in service at the time of the call and is in the process of being repaired.

There were no injuries reported.
