UPDATE: Egg production facility loses over a million chickens in massive fire

Units from around Wabash County responded late Monday night to a raging fire at an egg-producing facility.

Reports indicate multiple structures were burning at the site of Hi Grade Egg Producers, located along East 1100 North near Gene Stratton Porter Road. That's just  south of Hwy. 114 near North Manchester.

The fire could be seen from miles in any direction.

Hi-Grade is a 36-year-old operation and a major egg producer in northeastern Indiana. A report in 2009 indicated the farms held about 2.5 million hens.
