(SEYMOUR) - Firefighters responding to a fire Monday at a fertilizer plant in Freeman Field had to deal with tight working conditions -- and the smell of chicken manure.

Seymour Fire Chief Brad Lucas told the Seymour Tribune the fire at United Granulated Services LLC most likely started when embers created by overheating in the manure-drying process traveled through the building's duct work into a hopper outside, sparking the fire.

No one was hurt, but there was an estimated $30,000 in damages at the Seymour facility.
