Officials launched an investigation into the cause of a blaze that broke out Monday night at the Hormel Foods facility in Suffolk, VA.
The fire at the Culloden Street site was called in at 6:28 p.m. and crews arrived on scene at 6:32 p.m., the City of Suffolk Department of Fire & Rescue said in a release posted to its Facebook page.
“Once inside the structure, firefighters found fire in the cooking ventilation system,” the department said. “Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire quickly.”
Flames were under control inside the cold storage building at 6:47 p.m. No firefighters were injured during the response. The Suffolk Department of Fire & Rescue Fire Marshal’s Office is looking into the cause of the fire.
Hormel’s Suffolk plant manufactures Planter’s products, according to coverage by the Suffolk News-Herald. The company acquired the location as part of its 2021 acquisition of Kraft Heinz’s nuts business.
