It is plant number 59. It’s the one that has had a lot of OSHA safety violations. The news is saying that it has burnt to the ground.

From the video it appears a large part of the roof has collapsed. No injuries reported.

It will be interesting to know the cause of fire and it's relation to the OSHA violations.

Well that will put a pinch on sales! Wonder how it will impact the labor force. Good to see no one got hurt.
