A fire at a chicken farm east of Calgary has killed 30,000 hens.

The blaze at Sparks Eggs started Tuesday in a hen barn and spread to other buildings, officials said. No workers were hurt, but 80 people had to leave the site.

Investigators were set to arrive on Wednesday to start looking for the cause of the fire. The farm is a leading supplier of eggs to Calgary, handling about half of Alberta's egg production.
