Safety officials in Storm Lake say a processing plan suffered heavy damage during a weekend fire. Crews from four fire departments were dispatched to the Hillshire Brands turkey processing plant shortly after 7:00pm Saturday. During the fire, a large portion of the roof collapsed into the plant. The facility suffered extensive fire, smoke, and heat damage, but a damage estimate was not released. One Storm Lake firefighter suffered a minor injury, but was treated and released from the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center. The state fire marshal's office will be assisting to investigate the exact cause of the fire.
