Silo Fire Reported at Pet Food Processing Plant

A fire broke out this week in a storage container at a Diana Pet Food production facility in South Carolina.

Firefighters were called to a fire in a storage silo at the Diana Pet Food North America plant in Hodges, SC on Wednesday, according to a report in the Greenwood Index-Journal.

Greenwood County Fire Chief Steve Holmes told the newspaper that the fire started inside of the container and damaged materials stored inside. Fire suppression systems activated and doused the flames.

No injuries occurred during the incident, the Index-Journal said.

Symrise-owned Diana Pet Food operates 18 industrial sites across five continents, the company’s website states.
