BURLINGTON (WKOW) – Newly released 911 calls reveal a frantic scene inside the Burlington food plant where a fire caused $40 million of damage in January.

The eight-alarm fire began in the processing room of Echo Lake Foods before spreading throughout the building.

A supervisor can be heard helping other employees get to safety on one of the 911 calls.  The supervisor says, "We got all the maintenance guys here? Grab everybody and go to the front of the building."

No one was injured during the fire.

The company plans to rebuild on the site.
