Seven thousand chickens killed in fire at large-capacity poultry farm

A large-capacity poultry farm in the Moravian-Silesian Bruntál region caught fire on Saturday afternoon. Some 7000 chickens were killed in the fire, which was most likely caused by a technical problem with a conveyor belt. Firefighters assisted employees in saving the chickens; roughly 2600 survived the incident. Damages are estimated to reach a million Czech crowns.
