Barge company sues Pattison

A fire last year at Pattison Sand in Clayton has led to a lawsuit filed against the company by a neighboring company seeking $500,000 in damages for contamination related to the fire.

Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. filed the suit last week in U.S. District Court for Northern Iowa. The company claims that smoke and soot from a July 2014 mine fire tainted grain, salt, fertilizer and ag chemicals that the shipping company had in storage. Following the fire, Consolidated Grain and Barge says it suffered financial losses due to damage assessment and disrupted shipments. According to the suit, the company submitted an itemized claim for damages to Pattison but has not been reimbursed.
