A massive fire has destroyed part of a meat processing facility in Burlington. The Paletta International building, located at the QEW and Appleby Line, went up in flames just after 4:00pm yesterday. Flames could be seen shooting from the room and thick, black smoke filled the air. Fire crews from Burlington, Oakville and Hamilton battled the blaze. There were no injuries and everyone was evacuated from the building safely, according to Halton Police. The Ontario Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of the fire.
