Fire Department Answers Call To ConAgra Plant

The Archbold Fire Department responded to a Thursday morning, Sept. 29, fire call, but did not need to fight a fire.

AFD was called to the ConAgra plant about 6:27 am to a fire in the noodle room, where deep-frying noodles takes place.

Andy Brodbeck, AFD chief, said the ConAgra fire suppression system extinguished the fire before firefi ghters arrived. Firefighters did make certain the fire did not spread to other rooms or the rooftop.

They also stood by while the burned noodles were unloaded.

AFD responded with the first-response pumper truck, aerial truck, and other apparatus.

The department never pulled a hose, Brodbeck said.
