Sounds like not too serious - fires in the DDG dryers are not uncommon.

Phil,

I think you are right. From reading the news reports and comments made by POET spokesman Nathan Schock on Twitter, I think it sounded a lot more exciting in the beginning than what it turned out to be. I am especially glad that there were no injuries.
