TOLEDO, Ohio- Two people are dead after being trapped inside a grain storage tank in Toledo.

Emergency crews responded to The Andersons, located on Edwin Drive, at about 9 a.m. Friday for a confined space rescue, according to Toledo Fire and Rescue.

More than an hour later, the fire department switched from rescue to recovery efforts.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and Andersons employees,” the department said.

The Andersons has more than a dozen facilities in the Toledo area, and operates in the grain, ethanol and rail industries.
