Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV)-- A scary situation this afternoon in Moorhead where American Crystal Sugar staff were forced from the building after reports of black smoke billowing from the packing area.

Those claims were stamped out after Moorhead fire crews realized it was black iron dust spouting out from the sprinkler system which went off.

After searching, there was no fire found. It's still unclear why the sprinkler and alarm system activated.
