Winslow Meat Processing Plant Burns

WINSLOW (KFSM) — A meat processing plant in Winslow burned Monday (Nov. 20).

B & R Meat Processing caught fire, but it was contained to the front of the building.

No injuries were reported.

A few employees told 5NEWS there are a few hunters who had deer meat inside that the company was processing. They’re not sure if the meat was ruined in the blaze.

The owner of B & R said the damage wasn’t as bad as it could have been since it’s the busiest time of year for them with hunting season underway.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Central EMS, West Fork Fire, Boston Mountain Fire and White Mountain Fire were all on scene.
