BLOOMFIELD, Neb. – An egg farm building went up in flames and thousands of chickens died outside a small town in northeast Nebraska. Authorities say no employees or firefighters were injured Thursday evening by the fire at the Michael Foods facility. It sits a little less than 3 miles west of Bloomfield in Knox County. The fire was so intense a National Weather Service satellite detected its heat. A Bloomfield city councilman says Michael Foods has about 20 barns at the site and about 4 million chickens. The fire cause is being
investigated.
