This past week was an eventful week! One thing that slipped past your newsfeed was the industrial fire at the Mars Chocolate Facility in Waco, Texas. That’s right the famous makers of the Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, and of course, the Mars Bar had a fire.

The fire started shortly after 1 pm and reportedly began on a truck that was backed against the loading docks of the warehouse. Thankfully there were no injuries in this tragic event. However, the high winds made the fire difficult to fight and quickly spread to other trucks.

Thankfully everyone made it out safe, and it did not affect the downtown traffic of Waco too badly!
