DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) â€“ Fire ripped through a tortilla factory in west Dallas on Monday, destroying a family business that had been in operation since 1924.
Police responded to the structure fire at Luna Tortillas, located at 8524 Harry Hines Boulevard, at 10:43 a.m.
Fernando Luna Sr., whose grandmother started the business in 1924, says the company will rebuild.
According to Dallas Fire-Rescue, a number of workers were in the building when the fire started. Fortunately, everyone was evacuated and no injuries were reported.
