Crews from multiple area fire departments were dispatched to the Festive Foods LLC pizza and appetizers manufacturing plant near Waupeca, WI after a fire ignited at the facility Monday morning, local news organizations reported.
Staff at the plant called firefighters around 9 a.m. after flames ignited in an air compressor area and extended to the facility’s roof and a newer section of the structure, Fox News affiliate WLUK said.
Law enforcement officials ordered residents within a mile east of the plant to shut their windows and doors because of smoke, according to news broadcaster WAOW. A company representative told the station that all employees managed to evacuate without injury.
The Waupeca location has more than 120,000-sq-ft of fresh and frozen manufacturing space, information on its website states. Festive Foods produces Chicago-style pizza and appetizers.
