A fire keeps burning at Thomas Foods' meat processing plant at Murray Bridge after an accident in a basement sparked the fire, which has led to closure of the plant and more than 1000 workers facing an unknown future. Thomas has vowed to retain all staff through relocation. It may be able to keep some of the plant still running.
