Massive Fire Destroys Commercial Egg Farm Adding to List of 'Mysterious Fires' Ripping through Food Industry

As we reported last year, dozens of food processing plants were destroyed by ‘accidental fires,’ with the first major one being reported in 2023 as a commercial egg farm in Bozrah, Connecticut.

Firefighters spent hours trying to put out the blaze engulfing the 50-foot-by-400-foot chicken coop, which contained about 100,000 chickens.

Crews were faced with heavy fire from a barn housing chickens and manure as multiple departments were called to help tackle the blaze, the Epoch Times reported.

John Way, a safety officer for the Bozrah Volunteer Fire Co., said the building that caught fire was large — about 300 to 400 feet long and two stories high — and housed an unknown number of chickens, the Associated Press reported.

A video posted online showed flames shooting from the commercial egg farm building late Saturday night.

Watch

Hillandale Farms is one of the largest suppliers of chicken eggs in the United States.

The fire comes as the US suffers from a major egg shortage due to bird flu wiping out tens of millions of hens.

The shortages have caused the prices of a dozen Grade A eggs at the supermarket to jump to unprecedented levels.

The fire comes amid a string of suspicious fires at food plants which became almost an epidemic in 2022. According to Bloomberg data, “food plant fire” reports jumped the most in a decade last year.
