Thousands of chickens died in a structure fire at 5 a.m. Monday, July 28, on Crystal Lake Road in Warsaw, as reported by Stacey Page Online.

The 65,000 chickens died as a result of smoke and fire in the structure. The birds were four weeks away from laying eggs. No one was in the building at the time of the fire, but the structure was a complete loss.

The Atwood Fire Department responded to the structure fire with assistance from Warsaw, Burket, Winona Lake, Claypool and Leesburg fire departments.

Egg Innovations owns the building. The egg producers purchased the property a year and a half ago.

The cause of the fire is undetermined.
