Major damage in barn fire

A 6,000 square foot barn sustained between $150,000 and $200,000 damage in a fire that broke out shortly before 1 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Assistant chief Bruce Ferguson of the Township fire department said that there were no injuries, and no animals were in the barn.

The structure, on a farm in the 7500 block of 254 Street,  was used mainly for livestock and storing equipment.

The fire does not appear to be suspicious, Ferguson said, adding that an initial investigation points to equipment malfunction as the cause.
