Massive Fire Engulfs America's Largest Free-Range Egg Farm Killing Millions of Chickens

A massive fire broke out at Farina Farms Inc. in Marion County, Illinois, one of the largest free-range egg facilities in the U.S., resulting in the deaths of millions of chickens.

The fire began around 6:30 p.m. along Highway 37 before rapidly escalating into a 5-alarm fire, which required five different fire departments from surrounding areas to tackle the blaze, WAND TV reported.

The fire engulfed multiple buildings spanning 200-300 yards in length.

Marion County Sheriff Kevin Cripps described the fire as humongous.”

WGN9 reported that the smoke was so dense that it was visible on FOX 2’s Power Doppler radar, reaching altitudes between 13,000 and 15,000 feet.

Meteorologist Jacob Dickey wrote on Facebook:

“The fire at the Chicken Farm south of Farina is so hot it is actually producing a rare type of cloud over it.”

“It’s called a “pyrocumulus cloud.” They form over large fires (typically wildfires) due to the intense, upward vertical motion of air cooling and condensing as it moves higher into the sky.”

“If fires burn hot enough, they can create clouds that produce lighting and rain, called pyrocumulonimbus clouds. That probably isn’t the case in Farina, but the fire is being spotted on radar between 12,000 to 15,000 feet high!”

Chief Luke Baker said the Beckemeyer Volunteer Fire Department alone transported nearly 30,000 gallons of water over a distance of 45 miles to help tackle the blaze.

“You can imagine the amount of water and manpower that was being used,” Baker commented.

“Requests like this are made by MABAS (Mutual Aid Box Alarm System) to bring resources in from different areas so as not to deplete a whole county’s fire departments in one place.”

“All in all, it was a massive effort by these first responders to bring it under control.”

Watch

“We’re monitoring developments regarding last night’s devastating fire at Farina Farms in Marion County, just on the other side of our district line,” said Rep. Mike Bost (R-IL).

“Thanks to the swift and courageous action of first responders, it appears there were no injuries.”
