A soybean processing tank caught fire Saturday night at the Perdue Farms plant in Chesapeake, Virginia.

According to reports, when firefighters arrived on the scene, they found a large soybean processing tank on fire.

Using the towerโ€™s tank doors, it took firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control.

Police reported no injuries as all employees were evacuated. A plant manager said the fire will have little to no impact on their operations.

The Chesapeake Fire Department said on its Facebook page that there is still a lot of work left to remove product from the tank to ensure the fire is completely out.
