The fire occurred at Hillandale Farms, one of the top-5 egg producers in the country.

Per the Hillandale Farms website:

Today, Hillandale Farms raises over 20 million chickens for eggs and is one of the top 5 egg producers in the country! We handle everything about their raising and care, except hatching them. We are still family-owned and operated and we still care about the safety and conditions of our birds. They get only vegetarian feed, and we’ve developed many proprietary techniques and technologies to increase their safety and comfort.

The enormous blaze reportedly led to the death of about 100,000 chickens at the Bozrah egg farm.

It's unclear what started the fire.

No injuries were reported.

Hartford Courant reported:

More than 20 fire fighting crews from across the region battled a massive blaze at an egg farm in Bozrah on Saturday, fire officials said.

The Salvation Army was on scene Saturday and said that about 100,000 chickens may have died in the blaze, according to multiple media reports.

A chicken coop measuring about 50 feet by 400 feet went up in flames at Hillandale Farms on Saturday afternoon, according to Norwich fire officials, who responded to the scene for mutual aid along with firefighters from Salem, Lebanon, Griswold, Preston and several other fire districts.

Huge, smoky clouds billowed from the farm, located at 17 Schwartz Road, as crews fought the three-alarm fire for hours, according to officials.

Saturday's fire will likely exacerbate the exorbitant price of eggs.
