Hundreds of thousands of chickens killed in Fassio Egg Farm fire

TOOELE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah)- Hundreds of thousands of chickens were killed during a fire at Fassio Egg Farm Tuesday.

Officials are still working on the cause, but they say at least one of the eight chicken houses on the farm were destroyed.

North Tooele Fire District, Fire Marshall John Stout said part of the issues fighting the blaze is the location of the farm.

"We're using water shuttles from the surrounding areas and we're also using an onsite storage system fed by a well that only produced about 200 gallons a minute," he said.

Officials estimate 250,000 chickens were killed.
