Olymel to relocate employees at plant damaged by fire

The Olymel meat processing company plans to temporarily relocate employees at a Quebec bacon production plant ravaged by fire. About 180 workers at the Princeville, Que., plant will be offered the chance to work at one of the five other company facilities located within 100 kilometres. The May 6 fire, which killed one employee, did not completely destroy the Princeville facility but it caused significant enough damage that there is no short-term plan to reopen it.
