Important Takeaways:

  • Taylor Farms building in Salinas is a ‘total loss’ after large fire. What happens now?
  • As the smoke settles near Taylor Farms, questions remain on the future of the business and the roughly 1,000 people employed at the Abbott Street facility.
  • There is little to nothing left of the processing facility due to fire and smoke damages caused by Wednesday night’s blaze, according to Deputy Fire Chief Sam Klemek.
  • “About 85% to 95% of the building is a total loss,” he said.
  • In addition to fighting the fire, crews were on high alert for potential ammonia exposure dangers. Roughly 35,000 pounds of ammonia is stored on-site. The possibility that the fire could spread to the ammonia prompted city officials to issue evacuations and shelter-in-place orders for south Salinas.
