Officials say two workers suffered non-life threatening burns in a fire at the Archer Daniels Midland plant in Columbus.

The fire happened late Monday when a cloud of dust ignited while the workers were moving smoldering corn from the bottom of a silo at the corn processing plant.

ADM spokesman David Weintraub says Wednesday that the workers were taken to the hospital.

One was treated and released, while the other is still being treated.

Weintraub says both are expected to make a full recovery.

ADM is investigating the cause of the incident.
