A massive fire broke out today at the F.X. Matt Brewery in Utica, NY. The fire apparently began in the canning/bottling area on the third floor. A local news station reported that there are major cracks in the walls of the burning building visible.
The report also said that two brewery employees have been taken to Saint Elizabeth Medical Center and are currently in satisfactory condition.
All streets within a six-block radius have been closed. Residents who live on these streets have been evacuated.
The fire continues to burn at 7:00 pm Eastern time.
More details to follow as they become available.
