During the night of March 1st, five chicken-transport trucks were set on fire outside "Norsk Kylling," a chicken slaughterhouse and processing plant in Støren. Unfortunately, many other trucks were removed from the area during the fire, or else the damage would have been larger.

Norsk Kylling has been in the media spotlight numerous times for serious breaches of animal welfare laws.

The police and the owner of the trucks believe it's arson, but no one has claimed responsibility for the action yet.

In September 2007 three trucks were destroyed by fire at the same place. No one claimed responsibility for that arson either.
