Story from BBC NEWS:
Fire breaks out at bacon factory


Ten fire crews are tackling a major blaze at a food factory in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Firefighters were called to the fire at Direct Table Foods on Lamdin Road early on Wednesday morning.

Police say Lamdin Road has been closed, and the main Mildenhall Road was also shut to traffic.

Last Wednesday nearby Premier Foods - which makes Branston pickle - was partly gutted by a fire that was later blamed on halogen lights.

Direct Table Foods processes bacon, and is only a few hundred yards away from Premier Foods.

      My hubby used to live in Mildenhall when he worked in Ipswich. (The only city he knows that dies at 6.00 every night.) He was shocked to hear about this. Two fires so close sound suspicious. He loves Branston Pickle, as well. And bacon, of course. lol

        Looks like a case for Sherlock Holmes...

            Do you think Agatha Christie could figure this out?

              Considering that there's bacon in the equasion, I'd place my money on Poirot.

                  Dearfolk,
                  Perhaps Professor S. F. X. Van Dusen, The Human Thinking Machine, can be of assistance.
                  Futrelle-ly, Ort. Carlton in Athens, Georgia, which is 155 miles north of Jacques Futrelle's cenotaph.

                    don't know what happened but bet it sure smelled good-- there's something about the smell of bacon cooking.... or burning----- either way--- too bad for the loss but...

                      I'm thinking that Nero Wolfe would be the best bet...
