A fire that broke out Sunday in a three-story section of a feed mill of
Zeigler Bros. Inc was still burning in places Monday afternoon, fire officials
said. Because of the collapsing involved, certain hot spots were unreachable
until the cleanup process started.
The fire in the Tyrone Township village, USA was
discovered about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The mill produces fish and shrimp feed. The
company has another mill in East Berlin, USA that is not fully staffed. Some of
the people will be relocated to this facility. The two mills work together to
supply specialty feed to different markets both locally and internationally.
The company was founded in 1935, and up until 1967, it produced chicken
and livestock feed. Thomas Zeigler, the company's president and chief executive
officer, changed the company's focus. The Gardners mill now specializes in zoo
animal feed and aquaculture feed. The East Berlin facility primarily produces
feed for animals used in laboratory research and pet food. Related
