GREENE COUNTY, Ind.  ( June 25, 2015}     A long time Bloomfield business continues to burn Thursday night. The Bloomfield Processing Plant, located off State Road 54, just west of Bloomfield, was reported on fire just after 6pm.

Upon arriving at the scene, the Switz City Fire Department found the fire had not only spread but was so intense that additional crews and volunteer fire departments were called in to assist in controlling the situation.

As the fire burned throughout much of the evening,  Highway 54 was shut down to traffic and  is still closed.

The business offers a wide variety of services for meat cutting and processing. The cause of the fire is not known as firefighters expect to be on the scene throughout the rest of the night into early Friday morning.
