Two more food processing plants exploded in flames this weekend.
All this comes at a time when experts are talking about global food shortages as the nasty surprise in store for the world in 2022.
No one was injured in the fire at a Perdue soybean plant in Norfolk, Virginia, according to WAVY-TV, and the cause had not yet been determined.
“Chesapeake firefighters battled an industrial fire this evening at Perdue Farms in the South Norfolk area,” The Chesapeake Fire Department posted on its Facebook page.
“Plant operators reported a fire in large soybean processing tank. Firefighters climbed multiple flights of stairs with hose and equipment to access the standpipe system. Water was applied and the fire brought under control in approximately one hour,” the post read.
