A fire contained within a grain silo at the Tyson Feed Plant in Snow Hill has prompted continuous monitoring by the Worcester County Fire Marshal’s Office and Department of Emergency Services, along with the Snow Hill Volunteer Fire Department. Despite the fire, an independent contractor has confirmed that air quality within Snow Hill remains within normal regulatory limits. Efforts to extinguish the fire have lasted for multiple days and are ongoing. Officials say there is likely still a lingering smell from the incident. "We have reviewed the air quality test results, which reflect that all readings are within normal ranges," WCFM Matt Owens said. "However, like any form of smoke, those who are sensitive to air quality conditions may wish to limit outdoor activities."
