Fire at vegetable plant near Windsor, Ont., leads to emergency evacuations

TECUMSEH, Ont. - A state of emergency has been declared in a community just east of Windsor, Ont., after a massive fire at a vegetable processing plant.

Fire officials say a small ammonia leak has been detected at the Bonduelle plant.

Residents within a one-kilometre radius are being asked to leave their homes.

About 1,300 homes are in the affected area (bounded by Manning Road, Lesperance Road, St. Thomas Road and County Road 22).

Tecumseh Mayor Gary McNamara says residents are being offered shelter at the town's arena and a nearby school.

There are no immediate reports of injuries.
