– A massive fire engulfed a large egg farm on Saturday. The huge blaze likely killed thousands of chickens, and is expected to exacerbate the current dilemma of skyrocketing egg prices.
Around 1 p.m. on Saturday, a three-alarm fire was reported at the Hillandale Farms property in Bozrah, Connecticut.
WSFB reported that a total of 21 fire departments responded to the three-alarm fire, and it took firefighters eight hours to put out the blaze.
There have been several major fires at egg farms in the past few years.
In December 2022, a fire caused $12 million in damages and killed a reported 250,000 chickens at a large poultry farm in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, according to WGAL.
In October 2022, approximately 7,000 chickens were incinerated in a farm fire in Lexington, South Carolina.
In February 2020, a blaze at the Michael Foods farm killed approximately 400,000 chickens.
