A commercial chicken coop recently went up in flames for unknown reasons. If this were a one-off event, it would probably be unremarkable. But, as Jeff Reynolds has previously documented, there appears to be a pattern of infernos engulfing food production and processing sites.
Via NBC Connecticut:
More than 100 firefighters worked to put out a large fire at an egg farm in Bozrah on Saturday.
Firefighters said the fire was in a 50 foot by 600 foot operating chicken coop at Hillandale Farms on Schwartz Road.
Crews from 16 surrounding departments including Colchester, East Haddam, Salem, Gardner Lake, Lebanon, Franklin, Yantic and Sterling, Taftville, Montville, Oakdale and Lisbon and more than 100 firefighters total responded to the scene.
It’s unclear what may have started the fire. [emphasis added]
