PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. -- A chicken farm in Accokeek caught fire this morning, killing several chickens and doing significant damage to the farm.

The farm is called Plane in Hand Farm. According to their Facebook, they sell " eggs, chicks, turkeys, organic produce, organic jam and koi".

Investigators are still on scene, working to determine the cause of the fire. Because the chicken coops are wooden, the fire did significant structural damage.

Although several chickens died, no humans were injured in the fire. Fire officials are still working on a loss estimate.
