Early morning fire sparks at Sanderson Farms

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

An early morning fire broke out at the Sanderson Farms plant in Flowood. It started around 3:00am at the facility on Mangum Dr. 

About 16 employees were inside the building at the time, though no one was in the boiler room where the fire started.  Fire investigators tell us that room is used for heating cooking oil to cook the food. 

Most of the people inside the building were part of a cleaning crew and they evacuated when the fire alarms sounded.  No one was hurt.

The fire is now under control. It's not clear what sparked the flames.
