      Farmer's Co-Op fire ruled accidental

      A massive fire at a Blount county Farmer's Co-Op has been ruled accidental.

      Fire investigators say last week's blaze started when machinery was placed too close to flammable materials.

      It started in a building used to store fertilizer and burned for hours.

      People in nearby buildings were evacuated as a precaution, but no one was hurt.
