CORNWALL, Ontario - It's back to bacon, at Olymel - a day after a fire broke out at the plant.
Olymel, Cornwall's bacon processing plant, is back on track after a fire caused an evacuation on Thurs.
Employees resumed work this morning, after the 3:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. shift was canceled on the day of the blaze. A sanitation crew and clean-up team worked overnight to clean up the mess.
A large microwave, capable of cutting nearly a thousand bacon slices per minute, bursted into flames at the 24-hour plant on Thurs. Olymel spokesman Richard Vigneault said there were no injuries.
"The small fire was under control with the help of city firefighters," said Vigneault.
The Olymel spokesman said the microwave, which is used for pre-cooked bacon, is being inspected to see if it's still salvageable. The plant lost a little over 20 kilograms of product.
