A processing plant in Central Georgia was destroyed last week in a fire. McAfee Packing Co. Inc., located in Wrightsville, Ga., suffered a fire on October 21. No employees were injured, and the company has not yet decided on its future.
“Around 1pm, a fire began in the roof of our facility. We are thankful that everyone made it out safely and there were no injuries,” Ashlyn McAfee Williamson announced in a Facebook update. “McAfee Packing Company was founded in 1953 by my great grandfather and my grandfather.
