Flare-up fires at Echo Lake Foods


BURLINGTON, Wisconsin (WISN) - Firefighters are still fighting hot spots from an eight-alarm fire in Burlington. The original fire stated last Wednesday (01/30) at Echo Lake Foods.  

More than 300 firefighters battled the blaze and got those flames under control. 

Investigators say it is not unusual for these so called "hot spots" to linger, especially after a fire of this magnitude. 

The 300 plant workers are now forced to stay home. This Wednesday (02/06) the State Department of Workforce Development will hold a session to help displaced workers find new jobs.
