LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

Twenty five different fire departments responded to a large fire that broke out at the Kofkoff Egg Farm in Lebanon on Tuesday.

The farm is located on Mack Road.

The fire was reported just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday. As of about 9:45 p.m., officials said the fire was 90 percent contained.

Eyewitnesses said they could see smoke miles away.

"Black billowing smoke in the sky and I knew it was massive. And I was probably at least 8 miles from the scene," said Robert Potter.

No injuries were reported and over 150 firefighters were battling the flames.

Details on the conditions of any animals or damage was not immediately available.

Officials said there may be some minor congestion in the area on Wednesday morning.

It is unclear at this time what sparked the fire.

According to State Rep. Doug Dubitsky's (R-47) website, the Kofkoff Egg Farm is owned by Moark LLC, and is the largest egg producer in New England and the largest supplier of eggs to food stores in Connecticut. The company has facilities in Bozrah, Colchester, Franklin and Lebanon.
