MARION COUNTY, Ill. – Farina Farms Inc. Poultry Farm was engulfed in flames Wednesday evening and has resulted in millions of chickens being killed, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Department.

The initial call came in just after 6:30 p.m. Over 15 fire departments responded to the scene as at least three buildings on the farm caught fire.

The smoke was so heavy in the sky that it was picked up on FOX 2’s Power Doppler, reaching between 13,000 and 15,000 feet. It could also be seen from miles away.

Marion County Sheriff Kevin Cripps said there wasn’t any determination of what may have caused the fire yet.
