A tank heater short at PCS Sales (U.S.A.) Inc. Fort Dodge Warehouse caused a small grease and fuel fire, Moorland Fire Chief Ken Thompson said. The fire was reported by a passerby. Smoke poured onto old Highway 20, but the Moorland Volunteer Fire Department put out the fire in a little more than a half hour. The heater was under a rail car mover and fire damage was confined to the engine, Thompson said.
