UPDATE: Crews fight fire at John Morrell plant

Posted: Updated:

Fire crews were on scene at the John Morrell meat processing plant in central Sioux Falls, Friday night.  

Around 10:15 p.m., Sioux Falls Fire Rescue responded to reports of smoke and flames seen from outside the building.

Upon arrival, employees had evacuated the building. Crews did not find flames, found very little smoke. A large cardboard box had caught fire on the 6th floor, crews say, and that quickly activated the sprinkler system which ultimately prevented flames from spreading.

SFFR responded with 11 apparatus and 32 firefighters. Crews remind those with fire suppression systems to check and maintain them regularly and plan and practice your escape routes.
