BURLINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- Crews are battling a six-alarm fire at a food plant in Burlington.

The fire broke out just after 6 p.m. Wednesday at Echo Lake Farm Produce.

Some residents in nearby homes are being evacuated because of heavy smoke. A spokesman for Aurora Memorial Hospital of Burlington says the hospital is treating a couple of walk-in patients for smoke inhalation.

Firefighters from Burlington and other area departments were called to the scene.

Echo Lake Farm Produce makes egg products and breakfast-style entrees.
