Governor sends assistance in response to Tyson Plan Fire

Steven Rains - August 10, 2019 2:00 pm

Governor Laura Kelly sent assistance from her administration in response to a fire overnight that caused significant damage to the Tyson Fresh Meats plant in Holcomb.

The fire started Friday night and firefighters continued to battle the blaze this morning. Officials are assessing the damage.

Governor Kelly asked Secretary of Commerce David Toland and Secretary of Agriculture Mike Beam to travel to Finney County today to meet with Tyson representatives and local government and economic development officials to offer and coordinate support from the state as needed.

The Department of Commerce and Department of Labor have rapid response resources available to assist employees and businesses affected by closings and other setbacks.
