ABBEVILLE, La. (KPEL) -- Firefighters in Abbeville are working a major fire at the Farmer's Co-op right now.

There also appears to be some type of evacuation order that includes four blocks on all sides of the fire, according to witness accounts on the phone.
Witnesses near the fire say several fire departments are trying to put the blaze out, including firefighters from Indian Bayou and Lafayette. Some of those witnesses have flooded the phone lines. One caller called KPEL's sister station, 99.9 KTDY.
