Firefighters faced a massive challenge Saturday night as a fire broke out around dusk inside the Hillshire Brands (Sara Lee) plant. Flames could be seen from the central area of the complex roof. Departments from all over the area raced to help. The aerial truck helped to knock down the flames, but huge clouds of rolling black smoke stretched for miles. Ambulances standing by, but we did not view any injuries. Shortly before 9 p.m., firefighters were able to first make entry to the inside of the burning area of the plant.
