Fire hits Cargill’s Dodge City plant

KSAL StaffDecember 25, 2013

The Cargill beef packing plant in Dodge City is expected to resume full production by the end of the week following a fire in the kill floor area.

No injuries were reported in the fire Monday night, but 1,000 employees were evacuated and firefighters took several hours to put out all the hotspots.

KAKE-TV reports operations were suspended Tuesday, and a Cargill spokesman said the plant had already planned to suspend production on Christmas Day. The spokesman said production will resume Thursday, and the plant will be fully operational on Friday.

The cause of the fire is being investigated. More than 2,700 people work at the southwest Kansas plant.
