Douglas - - Coffee County firefighters say a weekend fire at a chicken plant started in a storage room.

That room at Gold Kist is a battery room used for maintenance. The fire started around 7 o'clock Saturday night.

Rescue workers evacuated some people who lived near the plant, because there were hazardous materials inside the building.

Several people were treated for smoke inhalation, but no one had any serious injuries.

The multimillion dollar company is one of Coffee County's major industries, employing more than 1,400 people.
