    A fire that started in the kitchen of a Frito-Lay plant in Arlington has spread.

    The grease fire spread to the roof of the plant on Avenue H East around 9:48 a.m. Wednesday.

    Heavy smoke is contributing to the difficult access in the plant for firefighters.

    Emergency crews on the scene have evacuated workers and called for a second alarm on the blaze.

    Workers on the scene say the plant makes Funyuns and Fritos Bean Dip.
