WATCH: Flour Mill SUSPICIOUSLY Catches Fire
(RightWing.org) – An Oregon flour mill was badly damaged by a fire on Tuesday. It’s the latest in a string of fires at US food processing plants. Is this just a run of industrial accidents — or is something more sinister going on?

Fire broke out at a flour mill in Pendleton, Oregon, around 3 p.m. on August 9. Firefighters quickly extinguished the small burn, but early Wednesday morning, it suddenly reignited. The Pendleton Fire Department had remained on fire watch, but the intensity of the flames completely destroyed the mill’s grain silo building.
The Pendleton fire is just the latest disaster to hit the US food processing industry. In fact there have been dozens of fires at food factories since President Biden took office — and now some people are wondering if there’s a deliberate plot to push up food prices or even cause mass starvation. In fact, this looks unlikely. There are dozens of fires at food processing plants every year, and flour mills in particular are notoriously dangerous.
Of course, there definitely are food shortages right now, caused by supply chain problems and the war in Ukraine, and that’s pushing up the price of food. This latest fire isn’t going to make things any better.
