New Jersey processor plans comeback after 3-alarm fire
The Case's Pork Roll production facility in Chambersburg, N.J., facility was heavily damaged in a three-alarm fire, damaging the plant's two ovens in the process. However, the company is promising its customers that it's not going anywhere, reports The Times of Trenton.
“We will be back,” said Joe DeBronzo, supervisor. “Soon. You ain’t even going to miss it on the shelf.”
Case Pork Roll has been in business since 1870 and still makes its hickory-smoked pork based on the recipe created by founder George Washington Case. The fire occurred at 7:30 a.m. On Tuesday, June 26. About 35 people were in the facility at the time, but there were no injuries reported. DeBronzo said that the fire may have been due to excess creosote left in the ventilation system. While hundreds of pounds of product will have to be destroyed, he credited the Trenton Fire Department for its quick action.
“The Trenton Fire Department, they saved this building, and they did an excellent job,” he said. “Hats off.”
