On May 30, 2022, a storage building at MVI caught fire, which is now 100% contained. Thankfully, there were no injuries. We are grateful to the local first responders for taking quick action to keep everyone safe. Per the news release issued by the Wadena Fire Department below, the situation continues to be monitored by emergency managers and there is no risk to residences or employees at MVI. New information will be posted to our website as it becomes available.
MVI has been working closely with the Wadena Fire Department and Minnesota State Fire Marshal Office, as well as the Minnesota Department of Agriculture to ensure continued safekeeping of farm chemicals.
As far as moving forward, MVI has been in Wadena for 30 years and will be here for a long time to come. We lost inventory but our people are all safe and ready to serve our customers. Our suppliers have already ensured that we will have new products in the weeks ahead.
We know there were a number of weather-related emergencies in our area yesterday that affected families, friends, farmers and nearby communities. Our MVI team is thinking of and praying for everyone affected. We will overcome these challenges as a community. Thank you for your ongoing support.
