In the text of an email alerting affiliates to the damage, the company describes itself as “the USA’s largest independent food distributor.”
It notes that “basically any…liquid product,” such as honey, oil, and vinegar, will be out of stock as a result of the damage.
Azure Standard also states it lost its fruit packing and carb product facility in the blaze, but expects limited effect as a result of the fruit harvesting season not yet being in swing.
CCC reported that records from the local county Sheriff’s log stated “Lights flickered; They heard a pop and went up there to check it out and there was a fire.” By the time fire responders arrived, with only one truck and four men, there was already a hole in the roof with flames bursting forth.
It took approximately 45 minutes for reinforcement units to arrive.
The 225,000-square-foot building, located in the 1200 block of Abbott Street, had been closed for the winter but was in the process of restarting operations for the upcoming season when the fire broke out shortly after 7 p.m. on April 13. All onsite employees were evacuated, and no injuries were reported.
Approximately 35,000 pounds of ammonia were on the property, creating concern for the potential of a hazmat situation and explosion.
“The fire progressed to the point that it posed a significant risk for a potential explosion of ammonia that is located in the plant,” said Sam Klemek, deputy fire chief and incident commander. “For that reason, we pulled back our units to a safe area and began evacuation notices for the immediate area around the plant.”
The immediate area, about a 1-mile radius from the site, was evacuated in the early morning of April 14, and shelter-in-place advisories were issued for the surrounding areas “out of an abundance of caution,” the fire department said in a news release.
MARICOPA, Ariz. — A massive fire burned 40,000 pounds of food meant to feed people in a food desert near Maricopa on Monday.
“We had just finished with the food bank,” said Jim Shoaf, CEO of the non-profit. “We were shutting down putting stuff away, I had only been gone about 20 minutes when I got the call that underneath one of our trailers was on fire.
“Every trailer that was here was getting ready for this weekend,” said Shoaf referring to their Saturday’s pantry distribution. “Everything was loaded with diesel, and once the fire started, it was just not able to put it out.”

For years now, we have all heard the story of the creation of the KISS band name and KISS logo -- Paul Stanley thought of the name, Ace designed the logo, and then Paul refined the logo --- But from the Paul and Gene perspective, we were never shown what the original version of the logo looked like -- It's clear now, the reason it was never shown to us, was because Gene and Paul didn't have it to show anyone; the artwork was buried within Ace's personal collection. Ace unveiled the original logo artwork for the first time in 2011 within the middle interior color page section of Ace's No Regrets Book and discussed its creation on page 77 of his book.
Ace designed the logo in early 1973 using graph paper in order to properly draw out the perfect proportions in a consistent scale. The logo needed to be created for obvious band identity reasons but Ace also thought a logo was needed for the purpose of selling a potential pinback button as a piece of merchandise or as a giveaway memento to friends, family, crew members, and supporters of the upcoming band at early KISS club shows. This is why the artwork was taped by Ace to a button for the sake of example; he basically built a prototype button to show the other band members in order to get everyone's feedback and approval. As for condition, the paper of the artwork is super delicate because it's going on 50 Years old. The paper is frail and was never kept as a collectible so there's tiny tears all around the edges. Due to its fragility, the button will be shipped to the new owner within a mylar sleeve inside a mini plastic case. Understand something here, by winning this auction, you will become both curator and steward of one of the most significant pieces of rock and roll history.
Here's your chance to own one the most historically significant KISS items ever offered for sale.....This purchase does not come with ownership rights to the logo design and does not give you any right to make duplicate copies of the logo for resale. This is being sold strictly as a collectible for you to enjoy within your personal collection. Measures 3.5 x 3.5. Comes with a Ace Frehley Signed Certificate of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
Chicken Matrix - A non funny English take on the chicken matrix.
Royal College of Art architecture student André Ford proposed back in 2012 that we turn to vertical chicken farms, where the birds have been lobotomized and raised in an unaware state. He said “As long as their brain stem is intact, the homeostatic functions of the chicken will continue to operate. By removing the cerebral cortex of the chicken, its sensory perceptions are removed. It can be produced in a denser condition while remaining alive, and oblivious.
The feet will also be removed so the body of the chicken can be packed together in a dense volume. Food, water and air are delivered via an arterial network and excreta is removed in the same manner. Around 1000 chickens will be packed into each 'leaf', which forms part of a moving, productive system.”
Ford called this project “pragmatic, not cynical”. “I think it is time we stopped using the term 'animal' when referring to the precursor of the meat that ends up on our plates. Animals are things we keep in our homes and watch on David Attenborough programs. 'Animals' bred for consumption are crops and agricultural products like any other. We do not, and cannot, provide adequate welfare for these agricultural products and therefore welfare should be removed entirely.
Earlier in the project I was proposing the chickens would be rendered unconscious, or desensitized by complete removal of the head but this has since been revised. Desensitization will be achieved by a surgical incision that separates the animal's neocortex, responsible for sensory perceptions, and its brain stem which controls its homeostatic functions. The head remains intact.”.
“Ford has yet to build an actual zombie chicken honeycomb, which would drive his point home further at the expense of any onlookers' sanity.”
