Abandoned Wichita dog food plant on fire again

February 20, 2020 - 8:44 pm

You may have noticed an odd smell through the City of Wichita Thursday...that is coming from the abandoned Treatco plant in North Wichita.

Fire crews responded to the call of a fire at the building in the 2300 block of North Broadway shortly before 4 Thursday morning.

The Wichita Fire Department says fire continues to burn, but because the building has been deemed unsafe, fire crews are battling the blaze from the outside and allowing the fire to self-extinguish.

Officials say there is no need to call 9-1-1 to report the smell and the cause of this latest fire has not been determined.
